A CONVICTED rapist was jailed on Monday for three and half years after he admitted sexually touching three girls.

Wayne Richardson (54) was also disqualified from working with children and ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Richardson, who was living in the Sleaford area but now of no fixed address, admitted two charges of sexual assault and two charges of sexual activity. He also pleaded guilty to two charges of voyeurism after ‘spying’ on two of the children.

Richardson was also banned from having any unsupervised contact with girls under-16.

The offences began in January 2011 and continued until his activities were exposed in March this year.

Each of the girls, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were ‘profoundly effected’ by his behaviour, Lincoln Crown Court was told. The court heard Richardson was sentenced to six months detention in 1977 after he was convicted of a rape charge in West Yorkshire.

Joanna Stables, mitigating, told the court Richardson had managed to stay out of trouble for over 30 years since the offence, which occured when he was just 19.

“He is now a committed family man who has raised two adult children of his own,” Miss Stables said.

Miss Stables added that Richardson’s guilty pleas had spared his victims the task of giving evidence in court.
