Mark Savill has prosecuted a defendant for offences of sexual abuse over a twenty year period, against four separate children. Previous reports by the girls had led to 'no further action'. In June this year, after a trial, he was convicted of 19 offences of sexual abuse by a jury at Preston Crown Court. On 29 September Her Honour Judge Badley sentenced the defendant to a total of 14 years imprisonment with an extended sentence for the protection of the public of 6 years. She also imposed a sexual offences prevention order.
