A man has been jailed for more than 13 years for a string of sexual offences against children.
Timothy Hayes of Sutton-on-Sea, Mablethorpe was convicted of 10 offences, including six counts of rape of a child and various forms of assault against a child, when he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court in November.
The 50-year-old had pleaded guilty to his crimes when he appeared before court officials last year.
And on Friday, 19 January, Hayes was sentenced to 13 years and four months behind bars at the same court.
He was placed on the Sex Offender Register indefinitely and was also given a Sexual Harm Protection Order indefinitely.
Detective Constable Michelle Adamson at Protecting Vulnerable People in Skegness said: “The crimes Hayes committed are both appalling and upsetting.
“They won’t be tolerated in Lincolnshire, and we will do everything in our power to bring people like Hayes to justice.
“We hope this sentence helps his victims find some sense of closure and peace.
“Great credit needs to be given to the people he hurt who showed dignified courage, bravery and patience when supporting us and other agencies.”
