Rushden man jailed for child sexual offences

A Rushden man has been given a five-year prison sentence for child sexual offences.

Raymond Collison, 43, was convicted of causing or inciting sexual activity with a child and attempting to meet a child following grooming.

The presiding judge told Collison that while he had apologised for his actions, the judge believed he was only sorry that he got caught.

Collison faces a lifetime on the Sex Offender Register and was also given an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) after being sentenced on April 23 at Leicester Crown Court.
