A 74 year-old man has been jailed for 14 years and placed on the sex offender's register for life for a 'campaign' of sex abuse involving three young girls.
Bertie Bobby was convicted following a trial at Norwich Crown Court of four counts of rape and sexual assaults on one young girl and sexual assaults involving two other girls with his offending stretching over a 37-year period.
Bobby of Railway Close, Briston, had denied all the offences but was convicted following a trial.
In an impact statement, one of his victims said that she felt as if Bobby had taken away her childhood from her.
Sentencing him, Judge Stephen Holt described Bobby as posing a 'high risk of serious harm' and as well as a 14 year jail sentence ordered him to be on an extended 12 year licence on his release.
