Pervert finally brought to justice


A man who subjected three girls to a campaign of sexual assaults which began when he was just 11 has been jailed

Andrew Jones used the girls, who were as young as seven, as playthings for his perverted pleasures.

He sometimes even invited pals to join in the abuse, which continued until he was 17.

But it was years before Jones, 44, from Farnham, Surrey, was brought to trial.

He was found guilty of one offence of rape, 13 of indecent assault and three of indecency with a child.

Moments before he was sentenced to 12 years in jail at Guildford Crown Court, two of his victims made victim impact statements.

They blamed Jones’s parents for allowing the abuse to continue after they had been alerted to what was happening.

One said: “I hate Andy for what he did to me. He’s never apologised to me or had the guts to admit what he’s done.”

Jones was placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and banned from working or associating with children.
