David Charles Eley, 54, was sent down for two counts at Swansea Crown Court on 28 June 2017.

Officers from the Western Public Protection Team (PPT) praised the courage of the victim who ensured vital evidence was placed against Eley.

Despite the serious sexual assaults – and her age – the victim had the strength and courage to support the police prosecution and gave vital evidence of her harrowing and traumatic experience. The victim was supported throughout by specialist officers from Western PPT, who continue to work tirelessly for victims of sexual offences and target and pursue individuals who exploit the most vulnerable persons within our society.
