A man from Openshaw has been jailed for twenty five for child sex offences after a jury found him guilty of raping and sexually assaulting a child under thirteen
Isaac Andoh aged 43 of Toxteth Street. was charged with two counts of raping a child under 13 and four counts of sexually assaulting a child under 13.
Andoh pleaded not guilty but, following an 11 day trial, a jury found him guilty of three counts of rape of a child under 13, three counts of assault by penetration of a child under 13, 10 counts of sexual assault of a child under 13 and one count of causing a child to watch a sexual act.
Detective Constable Emma Cooper, of GMP’s City of Manchester division, said: “Thanks to the brave testimony of the girls involved, we have brought the perpetrator of these sickening attacks to justice.
“The psychological impact of crimes such as this can be considerable but we hope todays sentence brings some degree of closure now that Andoh is behind bars – where he belongs.
“We will always take reports of this kind of crime extremely seriously and we’d encourage anyone who feels they have been the victim of such offences to get in touch with police.”
