Essex Sex Offender Jailed

A 20 year old man from Saffron Waldon has been jailed for two years for sex offences against underage girls.

Essex Police say Paul Taylor of Maynards Lane, Little Sampford "groomed and manipulated his victims".

He was sentenced at Chelmsford Crown Court for three counts of engaging in sexual activity with a girl aged 13 to 15.

He will also remain on the Sex Offenders Register for ten years and a Sexual Offences Prevention Order was also made.

Investigating officer Dc Lorraine Weston said: “I would like to acknowledge the victims of this crime who have been subjected to a heinous sexual offence.

"The victims have shown themselves to be honest and very courageous girls during a very difficult and lengthy investigation where they were subjected to a very intrusive examination of their lives.

"The victims have had outstanding support from their parents who have not only had to support their daughters but to deal with the ordeal of knowing their children have been subjected to this awful offence.
