Caernarfon man jailed for sexual attacks on teenage girl

A CAERNARFON man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl more than 20 years ago has been sentenced to four years behind bars. 

David Hughes-Evans was sentenced at Caernarfon Crown Court in relation to a number of sexual attacks on the girl that took place in the Caernarfon area between 1989 and 1991. 

Reporting Officer DC Bev Makanjee at Caernarfon CID said: “I hope the sentence will go some way to reassure the victim who showed great strength of character in coming forward, standing up to the perpetrator and ensuring that justice was served. 

“It is important to reassure victims that regardless of how long ago any crime was committed we will do all we can to see that justice is served and the perpetrator brought to justice. 

“North Wales Police takes matters of this nature very seriously and so it is reassuring to see this reflected the sentence passed out.”
