‘Extremely dangerous’ Northampton paedophile jailed for more than 20 years

A Northampton paedophile has been jailed for 20 years after he was found guilty of 27 charges of child sex offences.

Kevin Cannon, from Weston Favell, was convicted last month of multiple, repeated counts of child rape and serious sexual assault.

The offences relate to several victims over a number of years.

But at Northampton Crown Court on Monday (February 7), the 57-year-old was handed a prison sentence of 21 years and nine months, plus an additional 10 years on licence.

He will remain on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.
