An Eastbourne man has been jailed for a number of sexual offences involving children.

Daniel Graham Turner, 29, a cleaner, of Cavendish Place, was jailed for four and a half years after pleading guilty to a number of sexual offences involving children between 2004 and 2014.

Turner appeared for sentencing at Hove Crown Court on Tuesday (September 13).

He pleaded guilty to:

  • Causing or inciting a girl under 13 to engage in sexual activity 

  • Eight counts of making an indecent photograph/pseudo photograph of a child 

  • Distributing an indecent photograph/pseudo photograph of a child 

He was found not guilty of the rape of a girl under 13 at Hailsham.

Sussex Police said an earlier trial had resulted in a hung jury.

In addition to the jail term, Turner was also placed on the sex offenders’ register and is subject to an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
