Lichfield man jailed for sex offences involving young girl

A 63-year-old Lichfield man has been jailed for nine years for a series of historic sex offences committed against a young girl. 

Stanley Richardson, of Chapel Lane, Whittington, was found guilty of one count of rape and five counts of indecent assault, following a trial at Stafford Crown Court, on 13th December. 

The court was told Richardson, who was aged in his late-20s at the time of the offences, helped out at Whittington Youth Club. 

Three separate incidents took place in the early 1980s at Whittington Youth Club. The girl was aged under 13 years at the time.
