A MAN accused of sexual assaults on two schoolboys told a friend's mother that he had indecently touched one of the boys during a dream.

David Miller, 22, told the woman that he had been sleeping in the same bed as the boy and had woken up from a dream to find his hand on the boy's penis.

"He said the boy was awake and lying there frightened and that he didn't mean to do it," the woman told Ipswich Crown Court.

She said Miller had also told her that he wasn't a paedophile and that he didn't interfere with children like people said he did.
