Paedophile gets eight years

A man has been jailed for eight years after being found guilty of sexual offences involving a child.

Frederick Holmes, 60, of Cordingley Close, Holme Wood, was found guilty of incitement and sexual activity offences involving a five year old girl at Bradford Crown Court on Thursday.

An investigation was started in October 2016 when the girl’s mother reported the offences to police, and Holmes was arrested and later charged with both crimes.

He received eight years for the sexual activity offence and two years for incitement, which will be served concurrently.
