Police urge adults to act on signs of child sex abuse after boy under 10 abused by 31-year-old man

Officers who worked on a case where a Nottinghamshire man was sentenced to 27 months in prison for sexually abusing a boy under the age of ten have stressed the importance for adults to act on any signs of abuse.

Sean Rigley, 31, of Attenborough Lane in Beeston, Nottingham, appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday (October 18) having previously pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault on a child.

He will also have to sign the Sex Offender’s register for ten years.

The abuse was quickly reported to us by a family member who noticed a strange mark on the child’s neck and asked him what had happened.

They immediately reported it to the police and Rigley was arrested.
