Man forced to have sex with cow by paedo tells of colleagues' 'mooing'
A traumatised man who was sexually abused and forced to have sex with a cow by a depraved paedophile revealed to a courtroom he was mocked by co-workers who 'mooed' at him.
In a victim impact statement to Downing Centre District Court the man detailed the horrific affect notorious Allan Kenneth Brookes had on his life.
In September, Brookes, 55, was found guilty of a string of child sex offences to the same victim, but also pleaded guilty to a bestiality charge.
The victim, who was a child at the time of the abuse, told the judge of the long-lasting effects of the abuse on all facets of his life.
He revealed his horror when Brookes' arrest was reported in the local media and people assumed he was the victim.
"I received phone calls from work colleagues questioning me and people were mooing like a cow due to the nature of the charges," he said.
The victim added he did not return to work after that.
"I was now unemployed and terrified of leaving the house."
The court heard that Brookes' abuse turned him into a panic attack-prone loner who would leave class and hide in the bushes.
As an adult, he said the abuse had destroyed his relationships, financial success, education, sexual functioning and mental health and pushed him into alcohol addiction.
His partner, who read the statement on his behalf, broke down as she described his detachment from their young son.
"I don't feel comfortable holding him, giving him cuddles or saying 'I love you'," she read.
"Allan Brookes destroyed my life."
