Vile sex offender sentenced to 16 years

A vile sexual predator who committed a string of serious sexual offences against a child has been sentenced to a total of 16 years in prison

At the hearing on 24th January 2011, at Swansea Crown Court Andrew (Andre) Pollitt, 50 of Gowerton was found guilty of the following charges:

  • Five counts of rape

  • Three counts of sexual assault with penetration

  • Six counts of indecency with a child

  • Three counts of sexual activity with a child

  • Two counts of indecent assault

Pollitt had denied the offences to police, which forced his victim to give evidence against him in court. However, the jury saw through his lies and convicted him on all counts.

At the time of the offences the pervert lived in Gowerton but originally lived in Dorset

Pollitt was sentenced to a total of 16 years and will be required to register as a sex offender for life
