Detective Inspector Alan Curtis, officer in the case said today; “I am pleased with the result of the case and the conviction at court today.

“I want to thank the victims in this case who have had the courage to step forward and I hope this gives them the opportunity to come to terms with this and seek some closure.

“I want to thank the team who have investigated this series of offences, it is always a complex kind of investigation, but their dedication has helped to convict this offender.

“Perpetrators need to realise that there is nowhere to hide and we will pursue offenders no matter how long ago the offending took place. Victims are the highest priority for us and anyone who has suffered abuse of this nature can be reassured that if they come forward, we will treat it seriously.”
