A man from Selby has been jailed for 24 years for sexually abusing girls between 1972-85.
Terence Mitchell, 68, will also be placed on the sex offenders register for life.
He was found guilty in July this year of 22 counts of historical sexual abuse, two rapes and attempted rape. His criminality spanned 1972 to 1985.
"Terence Mitchell is a predatory paedophile who, between 1972 and 1985, systematically abused four young girls aged four to 15. He groomed his victims and sought out opportunities to be alone with them to commit unspeakable acts. This has led his victims to suffer severe physical and mental scars throughout their lives."
