Corby Man Jailed For Historic Sex Abuse

A 75 year-old Corby man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for a series of historic sexual assaults on young boys.

At Northampton Crown Court this week, John Francis Edwards of Tanfields Grove, Corby, was found guilty of a number of assaults which took place between 1989 and 1995.

The court heard details of a number of offences committed against three young boys.

Sergeant Annmarie Mason, from Corby CID, who led the investigation, said: "Edwards thought he had got away with his crimes for many years and has shown no remorse whatsoever to his victims.

All three of these young men suffered at the hands of Edwards but they have all shown tremendous courage by coming forward and supporting the police prosecution."

Detective Inspector Ali Reynolds added that he hoped cases such as this would encourage victims of historic offences to come forward, safe in the knowledge they will be supported and believed and that the police will investigate their allegations.
