A 79-year-old man has been sentenced to seven years for non-recent child sexual abuse.

Albert Victor Marvin, of Church Hill, Bagworth, was sentenced at Leicester Crown Court after pleading guilty to charges on January 19.

The charges were one count of indecent assault on a boy under 13 years and three counts of indecent assault of a boy under 16 years. Three of the offences took place in Leicestershire and one took place in Humberside.

The offences all took place between 1973 and 1983 when the two victims were aged between 12 and 15 years old.

Detective James Potts, who investigated the crimes, said: “Marvin abused his victims over some years and put them in a position where they felt unable to tell someone they trusted.

“His victims were left traumatised by what happened and continue to suffer to this day, but have shown commendable courage to draw a line under the abuse they suffered as children and come forward to the police so their attacker can face justice.”
