A REDDITCH man has been sentenced to 13 years in jail for three historic charges of indecent assault.

Michael Richards, 58 of Prospect Road, Redditch, was convicted in August, having pleaded not guilty, following a ten day trial, where he was found guilty by jury.

The offences involved three women and date from 1975 to 1994.

Richards was sentenced today, Wednesday, September 19, at Worcester Crown Court after being found guilty on August 7.

Police say anyone who has been the victim of a sexual offence is encouraged to report the incident to them as specially trained officers will help victims with care and sensitivity, and will work to get the right result for them with their wishes in mind.

There are also many agencies which can be approached for help, guidance or support which offer a variety of services outside the Police.
