‘Naughty’ retired vicar, 74, was caught having a sex act with a HENRY HOOVER in church while wearing stockings, claims he did it because his ‘diabetes wasn’t being medicated’.
- John Jeffs, 74, was caught in the act in Middleton Cheney, Northamptonshire
- The retired pastor was in his office in the city’s Baptist Center at the time of the crime
- He was seen standing next to a vacuum cleaner wearing only a pair of stockings
- Jeffs found guilty of indecent exposure after trial in Northampton Magistrates’ Court
A ‘naughty’ church leader performed a sex act with a Henry Hoover while wearing only stockings.
John Jeffs was caught red-handed in his office while working as a pastoral manager at the Christian faith-based group Parents Talking Asperger’s.
He was spotted by a churchgoer at a Baptist center in Middleton Cheney, Northamptonshire, who saw the retired minister standing next to the vacuum cleaner propped up between two chairs.
The witness walked by and said they saw Jeffs almost completely naked save for a pair of women’s stockings.
The 74-year-old noticed the member of the public but continued to act out the sex act because he felt “naughty,” a court heard.
Jeffs was found guilty of indecent disclosure, but the unimpressed judge told the hearing, “Why you thought it best to take this matter to court, I have no idea.”

Jeff’s lawyer told the court yesterday the pensioner was in “severe pain” because he was ignoring his health.
He also claimed his client’s diabetes was not being treated at the time of the September 2020 incident.
Jeffs, of Middleton Cheney, Nothants, was found guilty of indecent exposure after a trial in Northampton Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
Prosecutor’s attorney Ellie Hutchinson said Jeffs accepted in a police interview that he engaged in a sexual act in a church but claimed he did not know he would be seen.

Jeffs, who previously had a clean record, was given an 18-month community directive and was ordered to sign the sex offender registry.
He was also ordered to pay £845 in court costs and £200 in compensation to the victim who witnessed the sexual act.
Defense attorney Alistair Evans said Jeffs was still coming to terms with the loss of his wife at a young age and was in “severe pain” from ignoring his health and not treating his diabetes.
