Colin Batley, 48, of Kidwelly, west Wales, presided over a quasi-religious cult which preyed on young children and indulged in occult rites.And when it comes to this whole cult thing, TMR is all fired up about nothing. Right? Right.
Today, at Swansea Crown Court, he was found guilty of carrying out a series of perverted sexual acts on children and adults, including rape.
Batley was the self-styled high priest of the group, which operated from a series of homes in a quiet cul-de-sac in the seaside town.
He and five other alleged cult members insisted throughout the five-week trial that no cult had ever existed.
But the trial jury dismissed that version of events today when they found him guilty of more than two dozen acts of sexual perversion linked to his activities in the cult.
They included 11 separate rapes, three indecent assaults, causing prostitution for personal gain, causing a child to have sex and inciting a child to have sex.
The jury also found him guilty of six counts of buggery and four counts of possessing indecent images of a child.
His wife, Elaine Batley, 47, Jacqueline Marling, 42, and Shelly Millar, 35, all lived at separate addresses in Clos yr Onnen in Kidwelly.
All three were found guilty today of sex-related charges they faced during the five-week trial.
But the jury returned to its deliberations in the case of alleged cult member Sandra Iveson, 45, who faced a single charge of indecency with a child.
It has also yet to give verdicts on eight outstanding charges against Batley of possessing indecent images of children.
Because child abuse is "nothing".
And because you say so.
