A twisted paedophile who attacked youngsters while acting as the boss of a children’s home was branded “the devil himself” by one of his brave victims.
Vile James Carragher has been caged for an extra nine years for the terrifying sexual abuse of young boys.
The 75-year-old fiend has already spent the past 21 years behind bars.
Carragher’s reign of terror as head of St William’s, a school for boys with behavioural problems in east Yorkshire, lasted from 1976 to 1990.
The Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough , which ran the home, is now being sued by 249 former residents who say they were abused there by Carragher or other members of staff.
One of Carragher’s victims, who was attacked as a teenager in the 1970s, told the Liverpool Echo : “He isn’t just the most evil man from hell, he is the devil himself.”
Graham Baverstock, now 57, revealed he was driven to attempt suicide after the abuse and still suffers nightmares about Carragher
