Jail for Jersey home sex attacker

A former worker at a Jersey children's home has been jailed for two years after being convicted of sex attacks on teenage girls in the 1970s.

Gordon Wateridge who worked at the Haut de la Garenne home, had earlier been found guilty of eight counts of indecent assault against three girls.

The 78-year-old, who lives in the parish of St Clement, was sentenced at Jersey Royal Court.
He was also found guilty of assaulting a teenage boy.

He was jailed for 21 months for each of the eight indecent assault charges, to run concurrently, and for three months, consecutively, for the assault on the boy.


Gordon Wateridge worked at the home between 1970 and 1974

Heated exchanges in States

There were heated exchanges in Jersey's States this morning as Senator Stuart Syvret clashed with Chief Minister Terry Le Sueur.

The argument was over comments made by Senator Syvret late yesterday during a debate on the role of the Communications Unit.

Senator Syvret had accused the States department of spin, and falsifying information relating to the Haut de la Garenne inquiry.

He was asked to provide evidence of his claims overnight. Senator Syvret emailed documents to all States Members and says he has further evidence off-island.

Senator Syvret is a bully says judge

An independent UK report says Senator Stuart Syvret is a bully.

Christopher Chapman was brought in by the States Employment Board to consider the extent of alleged harassment of states employees and the effect it's had on staff in general.

His conclusion is that Senator Syvret's blog has trespassed 'far beyond legitimate expression of concern' and is a torrent of bullying and intimidation.

On his blog Senator Syvret maintains that some senior civil servants are, 'demonstrably incompetent, idle, over-promoted, unethical, a danger to service clients, utterly ineffectual and provably criminal - and yet completely invulnerable.'

Allegations about individuals range from branding one a 'scum-bucket' to claiming another is a 'child rapist', despite no charges even being brought against them.

Haut de la Garenne: Jersey care home couple found guilty of assaulting children
A married couple have been convicted of a string of physical assaults against vulnerable youngsters at a children's home in the 1970s and 1980s.


Morag and Anthony Jordan, both 62, from Kirriemuir, Angus, were both found guilty of eight separate counts relating to abuse at the Haut de la Garenne home in Jersey.

But after more than eight hours deliberation, a jury at the Royal Court of Jersey acquitted Mrs Jordan of a further 28 counts and Mr Jordan of four.

Both defendants remained silent as the verdicts were read, but a former resident who gave evidence during the trial was led from the public gallery in tears.

Mr and Mrs Jordan were bailed to return before the court for sentencing on January 6.

During the two-week trial, Mr and Mrs Jordan were accused of inflicting "casual and routine violence" while working as houseparents at the children's home.

Pair convicted of abuse in home for children

A SCOTTISH couple were yesterday convicted of abusing children for over two decades at a children’s home in Jersey, where fragments of a child’s skull were found by police in 2008.

Anthony and Morag Jordan, both 62, were found guilty of eight charges of abuse of children at the Haut de la Garenne home – which became known as “the House of Horrors” when it was searched by police two years ago – as former residents looked on. However, the jury acquitted Mr Jordan of four charges and his wife of 28 more.

The two had been accused of inflicting “casual and routine violence” on the children while they worked as house parents at Haut de la Garenne. One of the victims recounted she had her face pushed into urine-soaked sheets.

“She used to pull my face into the sheets and let the other children know what I had done, called me ‘pissybed’ and ‘pissypants’,” the woman, now in her 40s, told the court during the two-week trial.

The jury did not find that she had been force-fed and pulled around by the ears, as alleged.

The verdicts in the Jersey trial are the final chapter in a multimillion-pound investigation – one of the largest child abuse investigations ever held in the UK, but one that has been heavily criticised.

More than 100 former residents gave testimony to the inquiry that they had been abused, but only a handful of convictions have resulted.

Charges against three other people named by the former residents were dropped due to a lack of evidence. However, the inquiry did find that children held by the Jersey authorities had been abused for decades.

The Channel Island’s police force’s reputation has been seriously affected because of its failings over the years to uncover the abuse.

Speaking outside the courthouse, some of the former residents of Haut de la Garenne who gave evidence to the court said they now wished to “draw a line” under the case: “This is a mixed result, but the general consensus was there were abuses carried out and it has finally been recognised in a court of law,” they told reporters.

Both defendants remained silent as the verdicts were read out, but a former resident who gave evidence during the trial was led from the public gallery in tears.

Jersey's chief minister apologises to abuse victims

Senator Terry Le Sueur Senator Le Sueur has apologised to victims of abuse at Jersey's care homes

Jersey's chief minister has apologised to people who suffered abuse at children's care homes in the island during the 1970s and 1980s.

Senator Terry Le Sueur told the States of Jersey that the residential care system "failed some children".

A couple were convicted of assaulting children last month in the final prosecution brought as a result of the historic abuse inquiry on the island.

Morag and Anthony Jordan, of Angus, Scotland, will be sentenced in January.

The court heard they carried out "casual and routine violence" while working as house parents at the Haute de la Garenne home.

Mr Le Sueur said the island's government sympathised with all those affected by the inquiry.

He said: "On behalf of the island's government I acknowledge that the care system that operated historically in the island of Jersey failed some children in the States residential care in a serious way.

"Such abuse has been confirmed by the criminal cases that has been before Jersey's courts.

"To all those who suffered abuse, whether confirmed by criminal conviction or not, the island's government offers its unreserved apology."

The statement was welcomed by States members and the Chief Minister was pressed to provide more information.

He was asked to include details of claims for compensation from anyone who's evidence did not lead to a criminal prosecution.

Senator Le Sueur said: "I'm very reluctant to speak in any depth about potential civil claims because they are ongoing.

"I would simply say that in broad terms any individual can bring a civil claim at any time and that claim will be judged on its merits."

He said the States members should see a report into the whole matter in the new year.

Senator Le Sueur added: "I was anxious to present an apology today in advance of any other activity that may be required to deal with that aspect of the matter.

"I do acknowledge the importance of this and we will consider it as a council of ministers at the earliest opportunity."

The apology brings to an end Operation Rectangle, a Jersey police enquiry into historic abuse in the island.

While the most high profile cases involved the former Jersey care home, Haut de la Garenne, not all of the cases were at the home.

Jail terms

Seven people have been found guilty of abuse as part of the operation.

Gordon Claude Wateridge was found guilty of assault on three girls while he was a house parent at Haute de la Garenne between 1969 and 1979.

Claude James Donnelly was jailed in June 2009 for 15 years for rape and indecent assault.

Michael Aubin was given two years probation for various sexual offences at Haut de la Garenne between 1977 and 1980.

Ronald George Thorne spent twelve months in prison for gross indecency between 1983 and 1984.

Leonard Miles Vandenborn was jailed for 12 years for the rape and indecent assault of two young girls in the 1970s and 1980s.

The final case as part of Operation Rectangle saw former house parents at Haute de la Garenne, Morag and Tony Jordan, found guilty of assaulting children in their care.
