A man from Kent who sexually abused a young girl for four years has been jailed. 65-year-old Roy Cleaver, previously of Lavender Close in Margate, was found guilty of indecent assault and rape.
The victim was six years old when the abuse started in 2000. She was friends of Cleaver's family and would go to his house regularly.
On one occasion when she was upstairs Cleaver came into the room got undressed and pulled her trousers and knickers down and sexually assaulted her.
The victim had recurring dreams about the abuse and finally told her mother in 2013. Cleaver was sentenced to 13 years in prison at Canterbury Crown Court.
"It was an emotional case for everyone involved. The sentence reflects the seriousness of the crimes committed.
"The family showed tremendous courage throughout the trial and I hope the lengthy sentence means they can now rebuild their lives."
