Between 4th and 18th January 2016 James Thacker prosecuted a 77 year old grandfather for taking indecent images of his granddaughters, forcing them to watch pornographic films and sexual assault.
The jury unanimously convicted the defendant of 8 counts involving three distinct categories of offending.
Despite his age, lack of previous convictions, positive good character and his ill health, His Honour Judge Seed QC sitting at Inner London Crown Court passed an immediate custodial sentence of 5 years’ imprisonment.
He also imposed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order until further order and the defendant is to remain on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely.
