A PAEDOPHILE who abused an 11-year-old girl is being given free NHS Viagra after being spared jail.

Furious critics attacked the criminal justice system for letting Roger Martin boost his perverted sex drive with taxpayers’ cash.

Martin, 71, admitted the latest in a 30-year record of child sex offences when he appeared before Peterborough Crown Court.

But Judge Nicholas Coleman “reluctantly” gave him a non- custodial sentence because of his age and ill-health.

As he passed sentence, it emerged that Martin’s doctor has prescribed the blue aphrodisiac pills as part of his treatment.

Last night Stewart Jackson, Tory MP for Peterborough. said: “This is a bizarre and outrageous example of common sense being thrown out of the window for so-called human rights and political correctness.

“Someone needs to start thinking about what’s in the public interest instead of ticking boxes like a robot.”

Mr Jackson, who is also shadow communities minister, added: “Young people’s safety is at stake here.”

Claude Knights, director of children’s charity Kidscape, said: “I am shocked that someone has been given a chemical aid to sexual activity when they are misdirecting their urges.

“It gives them a chance to abuse more children. It is very surprising that someone with that tendency is given medication that enhances rather than dampens it. This is an example of non-joined-up thinking going on.”

Matthew Elliott, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said he was “disgusted” and added: “It is absolutely sickening that taxpayers’ money is being spent on Viagra for this evil monster.

“The focus of the authorities should be on stopping him ever abusing anyone again, not on providing free medication that could make his offending worse.”

The court heard that widower Martin attacked the 11-year-old last December when she was doing odd-jobs for pocket money at the sheltered block where he lives.

He admitted indecent assault and was ordered to attend a three-year sex offenders’ treatment programme and banned from having contact with children.

His history of sexual offences dates back to 1978 when he was convicted for having unlawful sex with a 15-year-old babysitter.

But a pre-sentence report suggested Martin, whose medical problems include diabetes, posed only a “relatively modest” risk of re-offending.
