A 64-year-old man from Northampton has been jailed for sexually abusing a child.

Terrence Jones was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a child in February last year.

Jones has been jailed for three-and-a-half years.

DC Kirstie Brooks, from the Force's Child Protection Team, said: "I am delighted at this result.

"This was a dangerous man who preyed on a young child and I'm really proud of the victim in this case, as well as her parents, for being so strong and supporting police action.

"Jones will remain on the Sex Offenders' Register for life and was also handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which restricts his contact with children and electronic devices."
