Pervert, 51, carried out ‘campaign’ of sexual assaults in the 1980s – and now he’s been jailed

A married father-of-one has been jailed after being convicted of carrying out a ‘campaign’ of sexual assaults in the 1980s.

Colin Heath carried out the attacks on a teenage girl – including an attempted rape – over a number of years.

The 51-year-old was convicted by a jury following an eight-day trial at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court earlier this year.

Now he has been handed a nine-year jail term for what the judge described as ‘a persistent and consistent campaign of inappropriate sexual pestering’.

A married father-of-one has been jailed after being convicted of carrying out a ‘campaign’ of sexual assaults in the 1980s.

Colin Heath carried out the attacks on a teenage girl – including an attempted rape – over a number of years.

Prosecutor Benjamin Lawrence told the court: “The woman describes being terrified during the offending. She has been emotionally affected by the offending throughout her adult life. She describes feeling isolated and ashamed and it has affected her relationships.”

Heath, of Endon Drive, Brown Lees, was found guilty of seven counts of sexual assault and one of attempted rape following the trial.

Now he has been handed a nine-year jail term for what the judge described as ‘a persistent and consistent campaign of inappropriate sexual pestering’.

Heath will be on the Sex Offenders’ Register for the rest of his life.

He will also be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which limits his contact with girls under the age of 16.
