Man jailed for schoolboy sex abuse

A man who sexually abused six teenage boys in the 1970s and passed some of them on to other men has been jailed for 18 years.

As a young man in his 20s, Philip Cave had a car which he used to impress schoolboys.

He gave them cigarettes and alcohol and went on to sexually abuse six boys aged between 11 and 14.

Today District Court Judge Rauf Soulio revealed that Cave had passed some of his victims on to other men including former television identity Ric Marshall, who was recently dealt with by the courts for other historical child sex offences.

Judge Soulio said Cave had treated the boys like objects and used them to recruit others.

He jailed the 58-year-old for 18 years with a non-parole period of 12 years.

Outside court one of the victims said the lives of some of his school mates had been ruined.
