A 50-year-old man who changed his name to Michael Jackson has been told that he may never be released from jail after being found guilty of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 10-year-old-boy.
Jackson, formerly Albert English, kidnapped the boy and took him to his ground-floor flat in Oldbury sparking a desperate search by police and residents.
The boy was found after he managed to move towards a window and was spotted by a woman in the street.
Debi Gould, speaking for the prosecution, said that the boy had been 'trussed up' in a cupboard and then sexually assaulted.
Birmingham Crown Court lifted reporting restrictions on Monday.
Jackson, of Bristnall Hall Road, Oldbury, will be sentenced on the 29th October and has been warned that he could be given an indeterminate imprisonment for public protection (IPP).
Jackson has previous convictions for sexual assault and also admitted the abduction of a 14-year-old girl in September.
