A 61-year-old man has been jailed after being found guilty of multiple non-recent child sex offences.

Ian Beeby, formerly of Sneinton Dale, was sentenced to ten years at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Monday 9 July).

Beeby was found guilty on 29 May of five counts of indecent assault and six counts of indecency with a child, following a five day day trial. He was acquitted of one count of indecent assault and one count of indecency with a child. 

The jury heard how both victims were nine-years-old when they were first abused by Beeby and how he abused the first girl for a number of years then a decade later, he began abusing his second victim, subjecting her to a number of assaults until she was 13-years-old.

Beeby was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order to prevent him from having contact with any child under 16.

Detective Constable Peter Burrows said: "The survivors of this horrific abuse have been incredibly brave in reporting this to us, as well as having to relive it all throughout the trial.

"Both women have remained dignified, regardless of the fact that they had to sit in court and listen to Beeby deny everything, after he ruined precious years of their childhood. Nothing will be able to give them those years back, but I hope the sentence today can give them some closure as they carry on their journey.
