Elderly man will spend rest of his life in prison for sex attacks on girl

An 83-year-old man who subjected a girl younger than ten to horrific sexual abuse in the 60s and 70s has been jailed for 18 years. 

A jury at Amersham Crown Court returned unanimous guilty verdicts against Frederick Stallwood, from Heol y Gors, Ammanford, West Wales, after a four-day trial. 

He was found guilty of two counts of rape of a female under 16, two counts of gross indecency with a girl under 14, and two counts of indecency with a girl under the age of 14.

All the attacks happened in High Wycombe in the 1960s and 1970s and involved one girl who was less than ten years old throughout the offending.

Stallwood was voluntarily interviewed, and was charged on May 22 this year.
