Man jailed for non recent sex offences
A MAN from Peterborough was jailed for five years at Peterborough Crown Court on Friday, February 10, after pleading guilty to sexual offences against two teenage girls.
John Christopher Fraser, 47, of Standish Court, Peterborough, pleaded guilty to seven charges against his victims. The abuse took place in Peterborough in the early 2000s.
He pleaded guilty to:
- Two counts of gross indecency with a girl under 16 years of age
- Two counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity
- Causing a child to watch or look at an image of sexual activity
- Two counts of taking an indecent photograph of a child.
The offences came to light when one of the victims found the courage to come forward to report them to the police in November 2015. Fraser encouraged his victim to take off her clothes before photographing her.
Detective Constable Nat Hebdon said: "It took a great deal of bravery for the victim to come forward and for the second victim to speak out about the abuse. The sentence given by the court reflects the seriousness of the crimes committed by Fraser.
"We take all reports of sexual abuse incredibly seriously and I would urge anyone who has experienced such abuse to come forward so we can help them to get justice."
