An Oxfordshire man has been sent to prison for 15 years for sexual offences against a child.

46-year-old Bradley Antill, of Fulmar Place, Grove, Wantage, was jailed at Oxford Crown Court today (7/11) for three counts of indecent assault, eight counts of gross indecency, one count of rape and two counts of sexual assault on a child under 13-years-old.

Antill assaulted the girl, who was aged from six to nine-years-old at the time, between 1 May 2002 and 30 April 2004 at locations in Wantage and Didcot.

Antill was found guilty of all the charges against him on 1 October, following a seven day trial at the same court.

Investigating officer, DC Maria Morrisey of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit, said: “I am delighted with the sentence imposed upon Antill, who is an extremely dangerous predatory offender.

“Antill preyed on his vulnerable victim, who was only aged between six and nine at the time of the offences.

“Further, he denied the allegations against him which forced his victim to relive these appalling and frightening experiences.

“I would like to take this opportunity to praise the bravery of the victim for giving her evidence and allowing justice to prevail. Antill will now be behind bars for a very long time.”
