North Wales man sentenced for multiple rapes
A 34-year-old man has been sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment at Caernarfon Crown Court for multiple sexual offences including three offences of rape of a child.
Anthony Oldham had denied abusing a child over a nearly five-year period but was convicted of seven offences by the jury after they had heard all the evidence.
Two of the three rape convictions were specimen counts which means that multiple occasions were taken into account under each charge.
Sandra Subacchi of the CPS said: “Anthony Oldham subjected his victim to repeated sexual assaults for his own gratification.
“He manipulated his young victim for a considerable time, but they had the courage to speak up allowing the CPS to bring a strong case to Court.
“Their testimony has resulted in Anthony Oldham being brought to justice for his horrific crimes.”
Anthony Oldham was sentence to a total of 15 years’ imprisonment, with an extended licence period of one year.
