The bravery of a young sexual abuse victim has today been hailed by police after his abuser was jailed.

Adam Casey, 45, abused the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, between 2013 and 2014.

A victim personal statement read out at Norwich Crown Court described how the boy used to be 'happy go lucky' but now has nightmares and difficulty in sleeping.

Casey, of Crow Hall Green, Gorleston, appeared in court yesterday to be sentenced having admitted five offences, including two of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

Jailing him for 10 years Judge Stephen Holt said the impact on the victim and his family 'makes extremely sad reading'. He added: 'It's quite clear that what you did to him has had a dramatic effect and an ongoing effect.'

Casey, who also admitted three counts of sexual assault on the boy, was also put on the sex offenders' register indefinitely.

Danielle O'Donovan, for Casey, said his best mitigation was that he pleaded guilty to the offences.
