The boy’s parents had gone to Canada.
Jay had befriended both the victim and his family, eventually moving into their home in a South Cambridgeshire village and even attended doctor’s appointments with the boy and his mother.
He continued to sexually abuse the boy until August 1995.
After this, Jay drifted away from the family but one day in 2001, he called them and asked to meet up.
The victim left the house when he arrived and later on told his family of Jay’s sexual abuse.
On Wednesday (3 May), at Cambridge Crown Court, Jay, of Glebe Farm Drive, Trumpington, Cambridge, was jailed for 16 years, having been found guilty of five counts of indecent assault on a male and three counts of buggery.
DC Jane Stokes said: “T Jay disgustingly betrayed the trust of the victim and his family, so I am glad he has faced justice.
