A Stamford man has been jailed for eight years in relation to 19 sex offences.
Dudley White, aged 52, was charged with the offences after the victim made disclosures to police in 2021.
He was charged with 10 counts of production of indecent images of a child under 16, three counts of making indecent images of a child, four counts of assaulting a child under 16 by touching, and two counts of inciting a child under 16 in non-penetrative sexual activity.
Images included eight Category A which is the most serious, nine category B and 38 C were located on his electronic devices, including his phone.
The offences were committed while White was living in the Stamford area.
White appeared at Lincoln Crown Court today [2nd November] for sentence. He was given eight years in jail, a lifetime Sexual Harm Prevention Order, a lifetime restraining order from the victims and placed on the sex offenders register for life.
Detective Constable Helen Morris from the Protecting Vulnerable People department said: “I welcome the prison sentence and the ongoing protective measures that have been put in place. This offending was against the most vulnerable in society and I hope with the conclusion of the court case, those involved can find some closure.”
If you have been a victim, remember that what has happened is not your fault. You are not to blame and there is help available.
