Russell Lear, 45, was sentenced at Norwich Crown to a 51 week jail sentence, suspended for two years, after he had been earlier convicted of touching the boy.

The court heard it had been one off offence and that there had been no repetition of Lear's behaviour since 1998.

Lear, who now lives in Surrey, was also ordered to carry out 180 hours unpaid work and was banned from ever working with children again.
