Pervert jailed for sexual offences against young child


A sex offender has been caged for more than seven years after being found guilty of a string of child sex crimes in Skegness.

Dwayne Arnold, 32, was convicted of three charges of sexual assault of a child under the age of 13, causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, causing a child to watch a sexual act and engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

Lincolnshire Police say all the crimes took place in July and August 2013.

He was jailed for seven-and-a-half years at Lincoln Crown Court on May 13. He was issued with a sexual harm prevention order for ten years and issued with a restraining order for ten years.

Speaking after the sentencing, DC Tony Hatfield, who investigated the case, said: “The victim in this case bravely and courageously reported the abuse to an adult.

“Lincolnshire Police are satisfied with the verdict and the sentence and hope that the victim and her family can now move forward with their lives.”
