A joiner from Horsford has been found guilty of the prolonged sexual abuse of a young schoolgirl. 

The court was told that Andrew Hill, 54 of Horsford near Norwich repeatedly abused the girl over a period of seven years, beginning when she was just 11-years-old.

  • Three counts of sexual assault on a female child

  • Three counts of indecent assault on a female child

  • Assault by penetration on a female child

Andrew Hill was sentenced to a total of 10 years imprisonment.
