Brought to justice
Specialist detectives have delivered justice to three people who were sexually abused in the 1970s after their abuser was jailed for 14 years.
Paul Stainsby assaulted two boys and a girl in Braintree between 1974 and 1981.
Stainsby, of Millers Croft, Dunmow, who’s now 71 was charged with 18 of offences including indecent assault and indecency with a child.
At Chelmsford Crown Court on Wednesday 19 January, he was jailed for a total of 14 years.
Investigating officer PC James Bowers, from our Child Abuse Investigation Team, said:
“This has been a long and complex investigation but through it all the victims have shown a huge amount of courage and dignity.
“Paul Stainsby exploited their vulnerabilities for his own sexual gratification and subjected them to a horrific and prolonged ordeal.
“He is a predator and will now spend the foreseeable future behind bars.
“Nobody should experience what the Stainsby put his victims through, especially children.
“I hope this case shows that it is never too late to get justice.”
