The brother of TV presenter Phillip Schofield has been sentenced to 12 years after he was convicted of sexually abusing a boy.

Timothy Schofield, 54, was sentenced to 12 years at Bristol Crown Court today on 11 counts of sexual offences against the boy between October 2016 and October 2019.

Detective Inspector Keith Smith read the following statement outside Bristol Crown Court: “Timothy Schofield, aged 54, who worked at Avon and Somerset Police’s Headquarters in Portishead, committed a series of sickening offences, for which he’s now been brought to justice.

“The victim in this case has shown remarkable bravery in disclosing the horrific offences committed against them, and their support of the police investigation and court process has been invaluable.”
