Man Jailed For Child Sex Offences In Essex
A 40 year-old man has been jailed for six years for carrying out a series of child sex offences in Takeley and Bishop's Stortford.
Lee Bass, from Lordscorft Lane, in Haverhill had denied 14 offences against a girl under the age of 15 between 2001 and 2012.
He has been sentenced to six years in prison, made subject of a sexual harm prevention order, and also put on the sex offenders register indefinitely.
Investigating officer Dc Stacie Collins, of the Brentwood child abuse investigation team, said: "Bass denied the offences and put the victim through the distressing ordeal of giving evidence in court.
"She has shown great bravery throughout the investigation and trial, and I hope the sentence handed down today will give her some closure."
Drivers in Essex are being urged to slow down when it's raining - after 5 deaths and 69 serious injuries on the county's roads in the last year.
A new service is now available in Essex, providing a single point of contact for victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year - nine at Chelmsford Prison.
