Man jailed indefinitely for 14 sex attacks on six children

A SHOEBURYNESS man has been jailed indefinitely for a series of sex attacks and rapes against children, involving six different victims.

Dennis Bowser, 44, of Friars Street, was told he must serve at least 10 years but will not be released until he is no longer considered to pose a risk.

The 14 attacks – including five rapes and five indecent assaults – took place between 1988 and 2009.

Bowser had denied all of the charges but was found guilty following a trial at Basildon Crown Court earlier this month.

As well as the indeterminate sentence for the protection of the public, he was handed a seperate 20 year sentence for the rape of one girl, aged under 15, which took place in 2004.
