Lea Valley Academy Football Coach Daniel Moss Sentenced for Abusing Pupil

Daniel Moss used his position as a football coach to take advantage of the female pupil.

He admitted that the abuse took place between October 2017 and November 2018.

Moss was conceited of two counts of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust.

He had set up and created a Football Education Programme at Lea Valley Academy School.  He also coached and mentored students.

Moss used his position to groom and abuse her.

On Monday 20th September 2021 at Wood Green Crown Court, he was sentenced to 16 months in prison.  He was also added to the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years and subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which includes barring him from working with children in the future.

Detective Sergeant Virginia Condren of the North Area Child Abuse Investigation Team of the Metropolitan Police, said:

The evidence against Moss proved he took advantage of a young girl and her family’s trust. She had put him up on a pedestal and her vulnerabilities meant he was able to isolate her and make her depend on him. He has deceived and devastated those closest to him, those who looked up to him and trusted him.

“He was deemed to be trustworthy by those who worked with him and as such he was able to get away with his criminal behaviour. It was the victim’s friends who became concerned and they were particularly brave in bringing the matter to the attention of the authorities. It is of great relief that Moss will no longer work with children.

“The victim has been supported by her family, friends and police throughout and I know this sentence has been a great relief. Her courage has been phenomenal.”
