Man jailed for 18 years for sexual crimes against a child

A man has been jailed for 18 years after he was found guilty of sexual crimes against a child.

John Brown denied the crimes but a jury found him guilty of two counts of causing or inciting a girl under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity and two counts of raping a child.

The crimes happened between 2008 and 2011 in Chesterfield.

Brown (56), of Crowscroft Road, Pilsley, was sentenced at Derby Crown Court on September 6.
