Peterborough man, 47, jailed for ‘vile’ sex offences against two teenage girls


A Peterborough man has been jailed for five years after pleading guilty to sexual offences against two teenage girls.

John Fraser, 47, of Standish Court, Peterborough, pleaded guilty to seven charges against his victims. The abuse took place in Peterborough in the early 2000s.

He pleaded guilty to:

• Two counts of gross indecency with a girl under 16 years of age

• Two counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity

• Causing a child to watch or look at an image of sexual activity

• Two counts of taking an indecent photograph of a child.

The offences came to light when one of the victims found the courage to come forward to report them to the police in November 2015. Fraser encouraged his victim to take off her clothes before photographing her.
