Allen, who set up and ran Bryn Alyn Community Children’s Homes in Wrexham, which consisted of 11 properties and housed more than 150 children from around the UK, was convicted of eight charges for sex offences relating to five boys between 1976 and 1992.

Allen, already convicted of 33 child sex offences in 2014, against children at Bryn Alyn Community Children’s Homes and already serving a life sentence, was found guilty of more historical child sex offences.

All but one of the victims in this case came forward after Allen was convicted in 2014.

The Court heard how many children found themselves subjected to repeated abuse at the hands of Allen between 1976 and 1992.

Allen, who was described as a “predatory paedophile”, denied 16 charges of indecent assault, two of illegal sex acts and two of trying to carry out other illegal sex acts.
The Jury found him guilty of seven counts of indecent assault and one of a serious sexual offence against boys as young as 13 which were in his care.

Mold Crown Court was told he would be sentenced for his latest convictions on 8 January 2020.
