Sex-pest hair­dresser spared prison

The Jewish Chronicle - - News - BY MAR­CUS DYSCH

AN IS­RAELI hair­dresser who kissed and stroked a 13-year-old girl dur­ing a styling ap­point­ment has avoided jail.

Shay Kal­dron was told he must un­dergo a three-year com­mu­nity pro­gramme dur­ing which he will be su­per­vised by the pro­ba­tion ser­vice. He must also at­tend a sex­ual of­fend­ers’ group pro­gramme.

The 33-year-old, of Brom­ley, Kent, and for­merly of Gold­ers Green, was con­victed last month of pounc­ing on the teenager while her mother left the house for seven min­utes to col­lect the girl’s brother.

Kal­dron was cas­ti­gated by Judge Roger Chap­ple QC af­ter it was re­vealed he had made ad­vances to a fe­male pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer who in­ter­viewed him ahead of the sen­tenc­ing.

Sen­tenc­ing him at the Old Bai­ley last Fri­day, Judge Chap­ple said: “I think there is a risk that you will get your­self in to sim­i­lar trou­ble again. I have read of your be­hav­iour when in­ter­viewed by the pro­ba­tion ser­vice.

“You be­haved wholly in­ap­pro­pri­ately to a fe­male pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer pre­par­ing a re­port on you.

“The word in­cor­ri­gi­ble comes to mind. It seems to me you need long term help for what I think is a prob­lem.”

The judge said the touch­ing of the girl had been a “gross breach of trust”.

Kal­dron, who also uses the name Shaun, told the teenager she was beau­ti­ful af­ter slip­ping his hand un­der her top and ca­ress­ing her stom­ach while she stood in front of a mir­ror. He had gone to her home in Finch­ley to cut her and her mother’s hair.

Po­lice were un­able to trace him for three years af­ter the in­ci­dent in Oc­to­ber 2005, but ar­rested him af­ter his vic­tim’s mother read in the JC last year that he faced sep­a­rate sex charges of which he was later ac­quit­ted.

He was forced to give up his mo­bile hair­dress­ing busi­ness af­ter his ar­rest.

The judge also im­posed a sex­ual of­fences preven­tion or­der, ban­ning Kal­dron from be­ing in the com­pany of any girl aged un­der 16 without su­per­vi­sion. He is pre­vented from con­tact­ing his vic­tim or any mem­ber of her fam­ily.

He must also pay £750 costs.
