Allenton paedophile jailed for 15 for string of sex attacks on young girls

An 87-year-old paedophile will most likely die in prison after he was jailed for 15 years for a string of sex offences against young girls.

George Cobbledick was accused of rape and serious sexual assaults against a girl under the age of 13, dating back to the early 2000s

The pensioner, of Walnut Street, Allenton, was also charged with sexually assaulting a girl aged under the age of 16 in the mid-1990s.

He denied all the charges but a jury at Derby Crown Court found him guilty of two indecent assaults, two sexual assaults, and three counts of rape of a child under 13.

The pensioner has now been sentenced to 15 years behind bars.

Cobbledick was sentenced at Derby Crown Court on Monday, May 22. In addition to his 15-year jail term, he will be placed on the sex offenders’ register for life
