85-year-old Arthur Baddiley was found guilty of 12 charges of gross indecency, incitement to commit acts of gross indecency and indecent assaults on children.

He was jailed for 15 years following a trial. The offences happened between 1986 and 1994 in the Cornwall and Lincoln areas.

We will always pursue offenders no matter how old or how historic the offences are, where we can. Baddiley has not shown any remorse for the offences he has committed.

These offences have had a massive effect throughout the lives of the victims. I hope they are able to start rebuilding their trust and relationships with others.
