Coalville child sex abuser who indecently touched young girls jailed

A 41-year-old man from Coalville has been jailed after admitting two counts of sexually touching young girls.

David Sachetti was sentenced at Leicester Crown Court yesterday to three-and-a-half years in prison.

Sachetti, of Twyford Close in the town, has also been registered as a sex offender for an indefinite period and will be subject to a sexual harm prevention order for an indefinite period upon his release.

After the case, Detective Inspector Helen Schofield, of Leicestershire Police’s Child Sexual Exploitation and Missing Persons Team, praised the victims for coming forward.

The first offence occurred between September 2006 and September 2007. The victim in that case was 11 years old.

The second offence, when Sachetti touched a 15-year-old girl, happened between March and May 2016.

Det Insp Schofield said: “David Sachetti targeted two young girls who he knew were under 16 years old.
