Telford man found guilty of sex offences

A Telford man has been found guilty of non-recent sex offences against children.

Richard Dimmock, 36, from Waltondale in Woodside, had been charged with two counts of rape and seven counts of indecent assault.

He was found guilty at Shrewsbury Crown Court earlier today.

Detective Sergeant Andy Dawson was the officer in charge of the investigation. He said: “The victims in this case were incredibly brave and showed a great deal of courage throughout and I’d like to thank them, we know how difficult it can be to come forward and report these types of offences however I’m pleased they have and their perpetrator will now face the consequences.”

Dimmock is due to be sentenced on 5 April.
