Michael Murrihy

A man has been jailed after he was found guilty of a string of sex offences including two against young boys.

Michael Murrihy, of Orchard Street, Kidderminster, had originally pleaded not guilty to all eight charges that he faced.

But, following a trial at Worcester Crown Court, the 66-year-old was found guilty of two counts of gross indecency with a boy under 14, four counts of indecent assault on a female, one count of indecent assault on a male and one of attempted rape.

Murrihy will now serve 11 years in prison for the offences.

He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register indefinitely while a sexual harm prevention order was made for 20 years.
