Herne Bay Pervert behind bars

A 37-year-old man from Herne Bay who sexually assaulted a young boy left in his care more than 20 years ago has been jailed.

Scott Goldfinch of Cornwall Road was found guilty by a jury at Canterbury Crown Court who heard how he assaulted the boy after he had been left in his care in Herne Bay in 1996.

Goldfinch was a teenager at the time and will now serve six and a half years in prison following the four day trial at Canterbury Crown Court and his sentencing on Friday 28 July 2017.
