Shop boss guilty of sex assault



Have your say

A respected businessman who ‘misread the situation’ when he sexually assaulted a younger woman at his home has been spared jail.

Despite being told to ‘pack it in’ by his victim, mobility shop owner and property landlord Socrates Socrates forced the 37-year-old woman onto his bed and carried out a sex act on her.

Socrates, aged 57, a father-of-four, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court and admitted the sexual assault committed at his house in Park Road, Mexborough.
