A Sheffield man has been sentenced to 13-years in prison after being found guilty of non-recent sex offences against children.

Lee Woodward, age 32, of Deer Park Road, appeared before Sheffield Crown Court on Monday October 22 for sentencing.

Woodward was previously found guilty of six counts of indecent assault, one count of sexual assault and one count of indecency with a child following a seven day trial.
