Pervert jailed for sexually abusing schoolgirl

A pervert has been sentenced to five-years in prison for sexually abusing a five-year-old schoolgirl.

Richard Mawdsley was found guilty of:

Two counts of causing or inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity – No penetration.

Mawdsley received a total of 5 years imprisonment at Chelmsford Crown Court on 13 September 2010.

In addition, he was made subject to a indefinite sexual offences prevention order which means he can never again be in the company of a female person who is aged under 16 years old without being supervised.

He must also sign the sex offender register for the rest of his life.

He will be released from prison in March 2013 and will be supervised on licence by the probation service until his total sentence ends in September 2015.
