Two men jailed for 1980s sex offences in Nottingham

Two men have been locked up for a combined total of more than 14 years after being found guilty of non-recent sexual offences.

David Levesconte had previously been found guilty of three counts of rape and two counts of sexual assault and Matthew Bouldin of one count of sexual assault.

The offences were committed on two girls, aged under 16, in the 1980s in Nottingham.

Levesconte and Bouldin, both aged 53, were sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Thursday 22 December 2022).

Levesconte, formerly of Hucknall Road, Nottingham, was jailed for 14 years and Bouldin, formerly of Cope Street, Radford, received a nine-month sentence.

Detective Constable Lucy Clarke, of Nottinghamshire Police’s Public Protection Unit which investigated the case, said:

“I’d like to thank the survivors for coming forward, as I know it would have taken great courage to relive their ordeals and give evidence which helped secure these convictions.

“I hope this case reassures people we will always do our utmost to bring sex offenders to justice, no matter how long ago an offence occurred. “I also hope it gives encouragement to any other survivors of abuse that they can come forward and we will investigate and seek justice for them – even if the abuse happened a long time ago.

“If you have been affected, please reach out. We have specialist officers on hand to provide advice and there are a number of different agencies in Nottinghamshire who are able to offer independent help and support.”
