Watford Man Jailed For Sex Assaults

A man from Watford has today, Friday 30th January 2015, been sentenced to seven years in prison at Harrow Crown Court for a number of sexual offences.

54 year-old Steven Godden from Vicarage Road was found guilty on September 22nd of 12 counts of sexual activity with a girl aged between 11 and 15. The offences occurred in Watford between 2000 and 2005.

Detective Constable Lee Hill from the Safeguarding Adults from Abuse unit said:

"Steven Godden is a sexual predator who targeted his young victim over a number of years.  No-one should suffer this type of abuse and in Hertfordshire we have a number of dedicated teams working to protect vulnerable people and investigate these types of cases.

I hope this sentence will give others who have suffered similar abuse the courage to contact police so that we can bring offenders to justice."
