A 77 year old man of Altona Road, High Wycombe has been sentenced to four years and six months’ imprisonment for sexual offences against children after pleading guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court to offences on Monday 15th June 2015.

The man was convicted of :

  • Indecent Assault (contrary to section 15 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956) between November 1977 and November 1978, when the child was eight years old.
  • Indecent Assault (contrary to section 15 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956) between November 1977 and November 1978, when the child was eight years old.
  • Indecent Assault (contrary to section 15 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956) between November 1977 and November 1980, when the child was eight to ten years old
  • Indecent Assault (contrary to section 15 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956) between May 1981 and May 1983, when the child was either nine or ten years old.
  • Possession of Indecent Photographs of a Child (contrary to section 160(1) of the Criminal Justice Act 1988) on 1 May 2014.  The defendant had in his possession eight level A images; 14 level B images and 626 level C images.

The man was sentenced to 54 months in prison.

Det Con Ami Chapple of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit based at Aylesbury police station said: ‘I am pleased that [the man] has been given a prison sentence for the offences that he committed against children. The offences took place in the 1970s and 1980s and the indecent assaults were committed against two victims, both boys under the age of 14.

It was very brave of the victims to come forward and report these offences many years after they happened, and I hope that this case demonstrates that Thames Valley Police takes all reports of this nature extremely seriously and will conduct a thorough investigation, no matter how much time has passed.
