Man Jailed For Child Sex Offences
A man has been jailed for eight years for sexual offences against children in Oxfordshire.
Erickson Jacob, aged 44, of Gravel Hill, Henley-on-Thames, was convicted and sentenced to a total of eight years’ imprisonment at Oxford Crown Court yesterday (11/7)
He was also issued with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and will be placed on the Sex Offenders Register.
Following a six day trial, a jury found Jacob unanimously guilty of four counts of sexual assault of a child under 13, one count of sexual assault of a child under 13 by penetration, and one count of causing or inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity.
The offences were committed against three girls who were all under the age of 13 at the time and took place between 2011 and 2012.
He was acquitted of one further count of sexual assault of a child under 13 relating to a fourth victim, a girl also under the age of 13.
Jacob was arrested on 13 December 2015 and charged on 29 November last year.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Sophie Holliss of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit, said: “I am pleased that Jacob has received a substantial custodial sentence for the offences against these young girls.
“I would like to thank the victims for their bravery in coming forward and subsequently giving evidence at court.
“I would encourage victims of sexual offences to come forward and reassure them that they will be listened to and supported. This case highlights the diligence with which Thames Valley Police investigate such allegations”.
