A 35 year old man has been sentenced to 30 months’ imprisonment for committing a sexual offence against a child in Aylesbury.
On Friday 18th March 2016 Ian Waterworth, aged 35, of Lister Green, Aylesbury was convicted at Aylesbury Crown Court after being found guilty by majority jury following a four day trial. He was sentenced at the same court on Thursday 21st April 2016.
Waterworth was convicted of intentionally touching a girl under the age of 13, and the touching was of a sexual nature, during January 2015.
He was arrested on Monday 25th January 2015 and was charged with the offence on Friday 18th March 2016.
Investigating officer Det Con Frances Robinson, from Aylesbury Child Abuse Investigation Unit, said: ‘I would like to commend the bravery and strength shown by the victim and her mother throughout the investigation, and the trial process.
The impact of this crime has been extremely difficult for the victim’s whole family to deal with, as Waterworth committed an offence against a young and vulnerable girl.
Thames Valley Police takes all reports of sexual offences seriously. Anyone who has been a victim should contact police and be confident that, if you report offences, you will be dealt with sensitively and every effort will be made to bring offenders to justice.‘
