A 66-year-old man has been sentenced to 12 years behind bars for sexual offences against five different women and girls dating back to the early 90s.
Graham Partridge of Langrick Road, New York, Boston was convicted of 10 different charges when he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court earlier this year on 30 May.
The charges included one rape, five indecent assaults, one serious sexual offence, two charges of engaging in a sexual act with a child and one offence of causing or inciting a child to engage in a sexual act.
The offences took place over more than 25 years from when Partridge was aged between his mid-30s to when he was 60 years old.
He was jailed for 12 years when he appeared before officials today, Friday 8 September and will serve a further four years on licence when released.
DC Dave Ziller, East PVP, has paid tribute to those who came forward and helped with the investigation.
“This is another positive conclusion to a lengthy investigation,” he said.
“Great credit needs to be given to all of victims involved in this in showing the courage, bravery and patience shown and also to the witness and supporting agencies.”
