Pervert sentenced to nearly five years

A man has been jailed for four years and eight months after pleading guilty to a string of sex crimes against an schoolgirl.

Christopher Charles Bird, 56, was this morning sentenced at Caernarfon Crown Court for three counts of sexual assault and for one drug related offence

All of the offences took place between 2012 – 2015.

The court heard how the victim had to undergo bouts of counselling as result of Bird’s vile actions.

Judge Huw Rees said: “These are very serious offences.

“The victim still suffers from sleep deprivation and mood swings as result of your actions.”

Bird’s address was listed as the Hergest mental health unit at Ysbyty Gwynedd.

He wore jeans and a blue jumper and showed no emotion as the sentence was handed down.

Bird will also be subject to a sexual harm prevention order for an indefinite period.
