A 45-year-old man has been jailed after being found guilty of the sexual abuse of four children in the 1990s.
Stephen Winter, of Millers Road, Waddington, was found guilty of six counts of indecent assault at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday 9 April 2019) and was sentenced today (10 April).
He was acquitted of three further counts of indecent assault and one count of indecency with a child.
Winter was sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment and was given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. He will also be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life.
During the six-day trial, the court heard that Winter had abused the four girls over a number of years.
DS Stuart Barson said: “Stephen Winter sexually abused four young and vulnerable children and, even when faced with a trial, refused to take responsibility for his actions. This has been a lengthy and challenging investigation and I would like to pay testament to the bravery of the four women who gave evidence against Winter to ensure he was brought to justice.”
