A 36-year-old man who abused three little boys despite being HIV positive was jailed for 14 years today.

Simon Morris Jones, pleaded guilty to 15 charges at Caernarfon crown court, including rape, sexual touching, and engaging in sexual activity with a child.

Matthew Dunford, prosecuting, said the boys have had to undergo a course of treatment because the defendant was HIV positive but to date all had been negative.

Jones will be on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Det Sgt Richard Griffith welcomed the sentence and praised the victims and their families who he said had the courage and resolve to stand up to the perpetrator.
