Roger Dodds abuse: Ex-council manager sentenced

Roger Dodds, 83, forced young students to engage in sex acts in order to secure grant payments while working for Sheffield City Council between 1974 and 1980.

Sheffield Crown Court heard many of the victims felt “powerless” to stop Dodds for fear they would not get the funding.

Dodds, formerly of Cotswold Road, Sheffield, was jailed after admitting 14 counts of indecent assault.

He was previously jailed for 16 years in February 2017 for similar offences against five other individuals.

Judge Sarah Wright ordered that the sentences would run consecutively.

She said: “The impact of you offending on these men, their families and their loved ones has been devastating. Each has clearly suffered psychological harm and will continue to suffer throughout their lives as a result of what you did.

“You targeted and abused them at a time of their lives when they were just setting out on adulthood and at a time of great opportunity in their lives, but what you did has blighted that forever.

“You have left a trail of sadness and devastation in very many people’s lives.”

The figures, which are from the Taxpayers' Alliance, show how much was paid in salary, pension contributions and expenses.

Sheffield City Council paid chief executive John Mothersole £186,125 as a salary with a pension contribution of £35,364.

Elsewhere in Yorkshire, Leeds City Council's chief executive was paid £201,171.

Meanwhile, North Yorkshire paid their chief executive almost £200,000.

Caroline Lacey, chief executive for East Riding of Yorkshire, was paid a combined total of £189,000.

A Sheffield Council spokesperson said it reviews its pay structure regularly.

"Sheffield City Council is the third largest metropolitan council in the country", a statement said. "We are still one of the lowest paying large authorities in terms of our overall top pay bill."
