Following a successful prosecution by Claire Harden-Frost, Leon George Eastwood (59) was convicted on 18 August 2015 of 2 counts of rape and 3 indecent assaults. He was sentenced today (19 August) to a total of 17 years imprisonment.
The offences took place between 1981 and 1993 and the defendant targeted two 12 year old girls. The attacks took place ten years apart.
The crimes were first reported in 2005 but it has taken 10 years to conclude this case due to a number of extenuating circumstances including the fact that the defendant had to be extradited.
