Report: Boy Became Aggressive After Alleged Sexual Abuse By Ex-JUDAS PRIEST Drummer

Andrew Barrow of is reporting that a British court was told Friday (January 16) that a teenage boy with learning difficulties became aggressive towards his parents and scared to be alone after he was sexually abused by a former JUDAS PRIEST drummer Dave Holland.

Holland is accused of sexually assaulting the 17-year-old a number of times while the special needs youngster was visiting his house for drum lessons.

The court has heard that the teenager's parents organized the music lessons to try to boost his self-esteem.

But in evidence today, the boy's father said his son's manner changed after he started visiting Holland's cottage in the Northamptonshire village.

"For us it was a very emotional time," he said. "He was very disturbed, really aggressive and mixed up. We noticed it.

"During the time he was going to Dave's we noted he was getting blotches on his arms, towards the end, the last few lessons.

"About the last time he went to Dave's he started to have baths every day. He doesn't like having baths.

"He didn't want us to go out. One of us had to stay with him. We would sit up on his bed and watch videos. He just clung to us, he was really disturbed.”

Maria Savvides, prosecuting, told the jury on Thursday that the boy had managed to stop Holland from raping him but had been abused in other ways, with the drummer using a sex toy on him on one occasion.

The hearing was adjourned until Monday. Read more.
