OLD Etonian Francis Cory-Wright is facing a jail sentence at the age of 86 after being found guilty of sex crimes going back 35 years.

Well-to-do Cory-Wright was convicted by a jury of abusing a young boy that he took on fishing and shooting trips in the late 1970s.

His victim was just 10 at the time, but kept quiet about the abuse because he did not want his own father to find out.

Last year his father died and the victim, now in his mid 40s, decided it was time to tell the police.
