Rapist sentenced to 10 years in jail for abusing young girls


A man who sexually abused two girls in Salford has been jailed.

Michael Leslie Wynne 45, of Lancaster Road, Salford, was found guilty of 11 counts of sexual abuse after a trial at Manchester Crown Court, Crown Square.

Today, Thursday 19 November 2015, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison, made the subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order and made to sign the sex offenders register for life.

Between 1990 and 1998, Wynne repeatedly sexually abused a girl in Salford, who was five-years-old when the abuse started.

He also sexually abused a girl in Wythenshawe who was eight-years-old at the time in 2010.

Detective Constable Victoria Burgess of the Public Protection Investigation Unit said: “I commend both victims in this horrific case for being brave enough to speak out about the abuse they suffered at the hands of Wynne.

“They have had to go through the trauma of giving evidence, but by doing so they have helped to bring Wynne to justice.
