A former swimming coach from Shepton Mallet has been jailed for 15 years after being convicted of rape and sexual assault of a nine-year-old girl.
Andrew Wynes, 51, of Coombe Lane, was convicted of six counts of rape and three of sexual assault, following a trial at Taunton Crown Court.
Det Con Karen Holt said: “He befriended the victim’s family and through his role as a swimming instructor he engineered situations where he could commit these horrendous offences.
"Wyne’s inappropriate relationship with the victim was first reported to police by a witness, resulting in a lengthy investigation spanning the last five years.
“The victim was initially unable to disclose what happened to her but later found the courage to come forward".
Police believe there could be more victims who have not come forward. They hope Wynes' conviction will give them the confidence to get in touch. Anyone with information can contact them on 101.
