A Littlehampton man is starting a seven-year prison sentence after being convicted of sex offences against two young boys.

Robin Hall, 76, retired, of St Marys Close, Littlehampton, was sentenced at Chichester Crown Court on Monday (October 3) having been found guilty, after a six-day trial.

A police statement said: “He was convicted of three indecent assaults on a boy, then aged between 13 and 15, between 1978 and 1980; and of four indecent assaults on a boy, then aged between 11 and 14, between 1999 and 2001. “

He was found not guilty of a fifth charge of indecent assault on the second boy, and was also found not guilty of a charge of indecent assault on another teenage boy in 1994 in Partridge Green.

“Hall was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) to last until further court order, severely restricting his access to children, and will be a registered sex offender for life. “

The current police investigation began in 2013 when the victim of the offences between 1999 and 2001 came to us.
