Man jailed for child indecency

A MAN found guilty of sexually assaulting two young girls in the 1980s and 90s was sent to prison for seven-and-a-half years on Monday.

Former Isle of Wight resident Peter Andrew Bradshaw, 51, was found guilty on two counts of indecency with a child and seven counts of indecent assault with a child following a week-long trial at the Isle of Wight Crown Court.

Bradshaw, now of New Jersey, USA, was living on the Island at the time of the offences, between 1982 and 1997.

A further two charges of indecent assault were discharged by the court but will remain on file.
