A sex addict who refused to make an escort a cup of tea before ditching her in a pub car park without paying her £720 bill has been jailed.

Matthew Bushell, who has a history of using sex workers, was jailed this week for breaching a court order after placing adverts for topless cleaners online.

The 48-year-old, of Cobden Road, Southport, previously lured women to his home for “job interviews”, before groping them and sucking their fingers, Liverpool Echo reports.

Bushell first appeared at North Sefton Magistrates’ Court in August 2006 when an escort he had hired called police after he failed to pay for her services.

“He didn’t even make me a cup of tea,” the woman moaned.

The court heard unemployed Bushell spent six hours with the woman, but he couldn’t afford the £720 bill because his obsession with phone sex lines and escorts had left him bankrupt.

It was heard that Bushell paid out £15,000 for escorts over two years, with his obsession with sex described as “unhealthy”.

Bushell, who admitted dishonestly obtaining services in court, asked the escort to travel from Bradford to Liverpool Lime Street station. Prosecutors said he took her back to his house for sex, after promising to pay her later, then offered to take her for a drink.

The then 37-year-old woman said: “From the start my experience was quite odd because he lied about where he lived, so we had to drive for about an hour until we got to his house.

“I thought there would be a bit of wining and dining because, as I told him – and as I was told in my introduction to escorting – that it wasn’t just about sex.

“I thought it would be going out to dinners and events and maybe a bit glamorous. But Bushell didn’t even make me a cup of tea, even though I asked him twice.”

After the sex session, the pair drove to the pub but the woman became suspicious.

She said: “I started to feel really paranoid – he was acting really cagey. He was supposed to get me the money at the pub, he seemed so trusting that I didn’t even think he wouldn’t pay. But he told me to wait in the pub and he sped off like a mad man.

“I was on my own, somewhere I didn’t know and had no money and no credit on my phone – the only thing I thought was to go to the police.

“The cops said I could either leave it and put it down to experience or prosecute. I decided that I should teach him a lesson.

“The police didn’t say anything about prosecuting me, I think they knew I had made a terrible mistake.”

The court heard Bushell sent the woman a text after dumping her in the pub car park which read: “Sorry. Had to do it. Did not have a penny at the time. Hope you got home safely.”

Bushell’s defence lawyer said he was obsessed with sex and knew he should have paid the woman. He said his parents explained he was “socially lacking in skills” and they were “at the end of their tether”.

Magistrates handed Bushell a two-year supervision order and told him to pay £65 court costs.

Bushell went on to sexually assault two women in 2013, Liverpool Crown court heard this week. The women came to the sex addict’s house after seeing adverts he’d placed on Gumtree for female cleaners.

It was also heard Bushell was later convicted of harassment against a female doctor, who he sent “abusive and insulting messages”.

The court was told Bushell placed adverts on the website Viva Street under the username “CoolBoy47” last December, asking if “ladies wanted horny fun”.

Simon Duncan, prosecuting, said Bushell placed 32 adverts for women “inviting them to engage in sex work, some advertising for topless cleaning services, and others offered payment for sexual services”, which he told police was “consensual sexual entertainment”.

Bushell, who was said to have a drink problem and be “remorseful”, admitted breaching his SOPO.

Judge Stuart Driver, QC, said it was “a persistent and deliberate breach” and jailed him for two years.

He said: “You intended to get women inside your house and the probation officer in the report concludes that you represent a high risk of harm to women.”
