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."
Two men have been jailed for a total of 40 years after an aggravated burglary in Essex, where a man was shot.
Anyone with information about an assault on a man in Chelmsford a month ago, which left him with serious head injuries, is being asked to come forward.
Essex's PCC is proposing a 3.25% increase in the Essex Police part of Council Tax.
