A paedophile who sexually abused a child may die in prison.

Ronald Williams has been locked up for nine years after admitting sexually abusing the girl for years.

The 78-year-old had initially pleaded not guilty to 11 charges, including one of possession of extreme porn, specifically a film of a person having sex with a horse .

He was due to go on trial in September but he changed his plea to five of the charges.

Williams, of Church Lane, Moldgreen , Huddersfield , admitted three counts of indecency with a child, one count of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault.

Those charges all relate to the same victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons .

Judge James Spencer QC sentenced him to nine years’ imprisonment, of which he would serve half before being eligible for release on licence.
