Pervert abused young girl in the 80’s

A man has been jailed following a case of indecent assault against a girl in Binfield during the 1980s.

John Carpenter, 66, of Windsor Drive, Barnet, was jailed for three years, with an additional year on licence, at Oxford Crown Court on Friday, November 22.

He was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for an indefinite period.

Following a two week trial, a jury found Carpenter guilty of one count of indecent assault against a girl in Binfield in the 1980s.

He was found not guilty of one count of indecency with a child against the same victim and five counts of indecent assault against two other girls during the 1980s and 1990s.

Carpenter will now serve three years in jail, with an additional year on licence.

He will also be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for an indefinite period.
