Teens abuser loses appeal
A sexual predator that molested two teenage girls has been told by top judges that he cannot complain about the length of his prison sentence
Paul Jarvis, 51 of Drake Court, Moor Farm, Hereford was jailed for 10 years after being found guilty of a string of sex offences in May 2012.
However, he challenged his sentence at London’s criminal appeal court with his lawyers arguing his sentence was ‘too tough’. But the complaints were rejected by senior judges, who said his punishment was ‘justified’
The court heard that he preyed on two vulnerable victims – one who was 16, and the other who was 14, after plying them with alcohol.
He was convicted of five sexual assaults against the older girl and of sexual activity and inciting a child to engage in a sex act in relation to the younger girl.
