A couple who sexually abused a young boy have been jailed for a combined total of 24 years.
James Hedges, 36, and Lauren O’Hanlon, 28, assaulted the boy on a number of occasions at an address in Surrey in November 2017.
Their offending came to light when police found images of the abuse on a phone belonging to Hedges.
Hedges was charged with five counts of sexual assault, as well as 10 counts relating to making and distributing indecent images. He was also charged with breaching his SHPO.
O’Hanlon was charged with 5 counts of sexual assault as well as 6 counts relating to making and distributing indecent images.
They both denied the offences, but were found guilty at Winchester Crown Court.
Yesterday, Hedges, of Cumberland Avenue in Basingstoke, was sentenced to 16 years and O’Hanlon, of no fixed address, was sentenced to 8 years.
