Pervert sentenced

A 40-year-old man has been jailed for three years for sexually touching a young child.

Neil Piggott, of Cropwell Gardens, Radcliffe-on-Trent, denied two offences of sexually touching a girl under 13 and an offence of possessing an indecent photo of a child but was convicted on 2 May following a trial at Nottingham Crown Court.

The touching offences took place in September and December 2017 and officers found the indecent image a child on his phone when he was interviewed by police on 4 February 2018.

As well as the jail sentence, Piggott was made the subject of a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and has to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register, when he appeared in court on Friday (26 July).
