A 63 year old man has been jailed for 14-and-a-half-years after pleading guilty to 11 counts of sex offences – including those against a child.

Graham Young  formerly of of Hesketh Meadow Lane, Wigan, received his sentence yesterday for the horrific crimes he committed against two teenage girls.

The court heard how Young had targeted the two youngsters after befriending those who were close to them and using highly sexualised language and innuendo when he saw them.

The girls were groomed by Young, who pleaded guilty to 11 sex offences against the youngsters, including possession of Cat A and B videos of a child, possession of Cat A, B and C images, inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and voyeurism.

DC Stephanie Goss of the Child Protection Unit in Wigan said: “We are pleased with today’s result, which has seen a dangerous, sexual predator removed from our streets. We hope that this allows the victims time to heal and come to terms with what they have been through at the hands of this man.

“As a force, we are committed to investigating any allegation of sexual abuse and we urge anyone who believes they have been a victim to get in touch with us. You will be believed, and you will be supported.

“If something doesn’t feel right, report it.”
