Stoke-on-Trent paedophile jailed for 15 years after sexually abusing two children

Pervert pensioner David Jepson has been jailed for 15 years after he was convicted of sexually abusing two children. 

The 76-year-old – who was in his 60s when he committed the crimes – abused his two victims when they were both under the age of 13.

Jepson, of Tasman Square, Northwood, was convicted of four offences of causing a child under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity; two offences of sexual assault of a child under the age of 13; and two charges of penetrative sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.

It followed a seven-day trial at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.
