A man from Bath has ben jailed for four-and-a-half years for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy over 30 years ago.
76-year-old Ronald Webb appeared in court today (26 July) after being found guilty of attempted buggery. He was also given a 10 year restraining order preventing him from contacting the victim.
The court heard how Webb, of Brook Road in Bath, befriended children in Swindon in the 1980s by forming a football team. This led to a group of children going back to Webb's house in Winifred Street one lunchtime.
Police say Webb showed the children pornography before following the victim to the toilet, forcing open the door, and sexually assaulting the boy.
The victim, who is now in his 40s, reported the incident to Wiltshire Police in 2017.
Commenting on today's sentence, Det Sgt Larence Billi said he "hoped it showed that justice could be served".
