Cannock paedophile locked up for sex attacks on young girls

A paedophile from Staffordshire has been locked up for 16 years after a series of attacks on two young girls.

David Poppett, 62 and from Cannock, was found guilty of 15 counts of indecent assault and three counts of indecency with a child.

The offences took place in Cannock and Hednesford between the late 1980s and late 1990s.

Poppett, of Moss Road, in Chadsmoor, was sentenced to 16 years behind bars at Stafford Crown Court on Friday and given a two-year supervision order to follow the jail term.

Poppett’s two victims were both aged under 15 at the time of the attacks.
