A man from County Durham who raped and committed other sexual abuse on two schoolgirls while working as a farm labourer in the 1970s, has been given a 24-year prison sentence.
John Regan, who is now 66 years old, must serve at least 12 years behind bars before the Parole Board can consider if it is safe to allow his release.
The offences were carried out in the 1970's when his victims were aged between 10 and 14.
Regan, from High Etherley, Bishop Auckland, had been found guilty at the end of November after a trial.
On his eventual release from prison he will then be subject to scrutiny under an extended licence period of 14 years.
