Henbury man jailed for sexual offences against two victims

A Henbury man has been jailed for more than 14 years for committing sexual offences against two victims.

The offending spanned more than 30 years and started when the victims were both children.

Terence Brown, 86, of Tormarton Crescent, was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court today (June 10) to 14 years and three months after pleading guilty to two counts of rape, two counts of indecent assault and two counts of sexual assault.

Hannah Squire, prosecuting, said Brown groomed the teenager and raped her when she was 16, telling her: “It doesn’t matter, it’s legal.”

Ms Squire said the pensioner groped a woman’s chest on two occasions, which prompted a report to police.
