A man from Lakenheath has been jailed for 18 months for sexually assaulting a young girl while she slept in Cambridge.
Raymond Daly, 43, denied the offence, which happened at a property in Cambridge in the early part of last year.
However, at Cambridge Crown Court this week (Wednesday 18th), he was found guilty of sexual assault of a girl under 13 and was sent to prison.
Mr Daly has also been placed on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years.
The court heard the crime was not uncovered until September of that year when the victim’s mother began discussing inappropriate touching with her.
Daly, of Roebuck Drive, Lakenheath, was also made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years, preventing him from having any unsupervised contact with children under the age of 16.
DC Sam Constable, who investigated, said:
"I would like to praise the young victim for her bravery in coming forward.
The sentence given shows how seriously the courts take this type of offence against vulnerable victims."
