A DISGRACED former church treasurer will spend at least four years behind bars for sexually abusing a six-year-old boy.
David Barras, 63, cunningly contrived to be alone with the child, instructing him to strip naked and repeatedly trying to persuade him to commit a disgusting sex act.
Barras, of Broadstone Way, Holme Wood, Bradford, was on prison licence after plundering more than £30,000 from a deprived parish in the city, when he incited the little boy to engage in sexual activity after luring his grandmother away.


Prosecutor Stephen Wood told Bradford Crown Court that Barras, a former chartered accountant, had displayed an astonishing lack of insight and contrition about what he had done to his young victim.
He had dropped his lower clothing and exposed himself to the child, blocking his path for up to 30 minutes while trying to abuse him.
“It must have been a frightening, confusing experience for a six-year-old boy,” Mr Wood said.
The child told his parents and his mother recorded what her son said to give to the police.
Barras admitted to investigating officers that he singled out his victim because he was vulnerable and he had asked the little boy to undress to make the experience “better”.
