Maschinsky was arrested in September 2019, interviewed and charged with four offences of sexual assault against a girl under 13.

He pleaded not guilty and following his trial, which started on Monday, forcing the young victim to give evidence oin court. 

However, he was found guilty of two of the offences.

Judge Hirst also commented that Maschinsky had shown no remorse at all for what he had done

When he is released his name will go on the Sex Offenders’ Register and he will be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order indefinitely.
