(Scroll down for video) Two BBC radio hosts were accused of luring children to the woods, where they had sex with them, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, the married couple from Leicestershire, have been sentenced to a total of 10 years in prison for sexual offenses against seven boys.

Tony Wadsworth, 69, and Julie Wadsworth, 60, both of Old Mill Road, Broughton Astley, were found guilty of 28 offenses after a three-week trial at the Warwick Crown Court.

Tony and Julie, who were living in Atherstone, Warwickshire, when the offenses took place, abused the boys in a wooded area not far from where they lived, encouraging the boys to engage in sexual activity with them.

The boys were 11 to 15 years old at the time of the offenses.

Tony was convicted of nine counts of indecent assault on a boy aged under 16 and five counts of outraging public decency. He has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Julie was convicted of nine counts of indecent assault on a boy under the age of 16 years and five counts of outraging public decency.

She was found not guilty of two counts of indecent assault on a boy aged under 16. She has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Rhys Bower said: “The verdict is the result of a thorough and detailed investigation. These two individuals gave no thought to the impact their actions were having on the young boys they abused. They were only concerned with their own gratification.

“The abuse the victims experienced in their youth has undoubtedly been very damaging. I commend them all for showing tremendous courage in disclosing what happened to them and asking for help and support. I hope that the verdict and sentence will finally allow them the opportunity to move forward with their lives and put the abuse they suffered behind them.

“The passage of time does not lessen the impact sexual offenses have on their victims, and Warwickshire Police will continue to work with our partner agencies to ensure those responsible are made to answer for their crimes. Anyone who comes forward to report an offense of sexual abuse, whenever the abuse took place, will be given specialist support and guidance throughout the investigation.”

According to the police investigation, the married couple both worked as hosts on BBC radio in Leicester. The court heard that Julie had body image issues and wanted to have sex with young boys.

Her husband lured the young boys to their home or in wooded areas, where she had sex with the children while Tony watched.

Occasionally, Toy joined his wife to have sex with the children.
