A 41-year-old man who was found guilty of sexual offences against a child has been sentenced to six years behind bars.

Desmond Bowers, from the Derby area, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court yesterday (Thursday 28 March) where he was found guilty of one count of sexual assault on a child. The offence took place in the Doncaster area.

An investigation was launched into Bowers in November 2015 following a report to the police about his behaviour. The initial disclosure from his victim led to a four-year police operation. 

In addition to his prison term, Bowers was given a lifetime restraining order against his victim and their family, and will be on the sex offenders register for life.

PC Adam Frost, officer in the case, said: “The victim involved in this matter has shown immense courage throughout this investigation and their strength has been commendable for a person of their age.

“After a four-year investigation, I hope that the court result will bring some closure to the victim and their family.”
