Sexual predator jailed for more than 14 years

A man has been jailed for 14.5 years after pleading guilty to 11 counts of sex offences – including against a child.

Graham Young (63) formerly of of Hesketh Meadow Lane, Wigan, was sentenced on Friday for horrific acts against teenage girls.

The court heard how Young groomed the two girls after befriending those close to them and would use highly sexualised language and innuendo when he saw them.

Young pleaded guilty to 11 sex offences against the youngsters, including possession of Cat A and B videos of a child, possession of Cat A, B and C images, inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and voyeurism.

DC Stephanie Goss said: “We are pleased with this result, which has seen a dangerous, sexual predator removed from our streets. We hope that this allows the victims time to heal and come to terms with what they have been through at the hands of this man.

“As a force, we are committed to investigating any allegation of sexual abuse and we urge anyone who believes they have been a victim to get in touch with us. You will be believed, and you will be supported.

“If something doesn’t feel right, report it. If you or someone you know has been raped or sexually assaulted, we encourage you not to suffer in silence and report it to the police, or a support agency so you can get the help and support available.”

Greater Manchester Police can be contacted via 101 or through the Live Chat function on the website, www.gmp.police.uk.
