Man jailed for indecent assault

Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been jailed for an indecent assault in Binfield.

John Carpenter, aged 66, Windsor Drive, Barnet, was jailed for three years, with an additional year on licence at Oxford Crown Court on Friday (22/11).

He was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for an indefinite period.

Following a two week trial, a jury found Carpenter guilty of one count of indecent assault against a girl in Binfield in the 1980s.

He was found not guilty of one count of indecency with a child against the same victim and five counts of indecent assault against two other girls during the 1980s and 1990s.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Hannah Broughton of Force CID, said: “I would like to thank all the victims and witnesses involved in this investigation. They have shown incredible strength and courage to contact the police and support our investigation.

“I am pleased that Carpenter will now serve three years in jail, with an additional year on licence. He will also be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for an indefinite period.

“This case demonstrates that Thames Valley police takes all reports of rape and sexual assault seriously and we have specially trained officers available to help.  If you have been a victim, please don’t suffer in silence, please contact us.
