Taxi driver jailed after sexual assault on young girl

A taxi driver who admitted sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl as he drove her home from school in Trowbridge has been sent to prison for more than six years.

Wayne Gainey, aged 38, from Christchurch Street East, Frome was jailed for six years and four months at Swindon Crown Court today (06/08) after pleading guilty to sexual assault at an earlier hearing in July.

On 4 June 2019, Gainey picked up his victim from school and during the journey home stopped the car and sexually assaulted her in the vehicle before then taking her home.
