21 months for partner of P.I.E. founder

"A former school teacher and long term partner of the founder of the Paedophile Information Exchange has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for molesting an 11-year-old boy."

"Richard Alston, 70, met the now adult victim while working at Cavendish School for 'maladjusted boys' in Greenford, Middlesex, in the late 1970s."

"Together with his partner, Peter Righton, the pensioner forced the youngster to watch pornography and then perform sex acts on him."

"Alston was today sentenced to a total of 21 months in prison for one count of indecent assault and one count of indecency with a child at Southwark Crown Court."

"Righton, who is now dead, was a founding member of the Paedophile Information Exchange - a group set up in the 1970s that campaigned to lower the age of consent."

"It was the investigation into Righton, who was convicted of importing child pornography in 1992, that led to MP Tom Watson using parliamentary privilege in 2012 to allege that there was 'clear intelligence' of a VIP child sex abuse ring..."

"Despite being cleared of a number of offences, Alston was convicted of incidents that took place when Righton was present and a participant."

"The court heard that Righton and Alston's friend Charles Napier - now a convicted paedophile - would also be present for some of the meetings with the boy."

"Last December, Napier, the half-brother of senior Conservative MP John Whittingdale, was jailed for 13 years for carrying out hundreds of sexual assaults on young boys..."

"In January 1979 in Aberdeen, Scotland, [Alston] was admonished - the equivalent of a caution in English law - after admitting one count of lewd, indecent, libidinous practices, namely placing his hand on a boy's thigh in the cinema."
