A man will spend nine years behind bars for sexual offences against a child in Buckinghamshire.

Denis Mauger, aged 75, of Chapel Lane, Chilton, was sentenced today (15/2) at Aylesbury Crown Court.

He was convicted last month by unanimous verdict of six counts of indecent assault against a girl in Buckinghamshire.

His offences took place between 1971 and 1980 when his victim was aged between 6 and 15.

Mauger subjected the victim to a number of indecent assaults during that time.

The offences were reported to Thames Valley Police in 2017 and Mauger was charged in July 2018.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Collette Parker, of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit based at Aylesbury, said:

“I would like to thank the victim for her courage, bravery and determination throughout the investigation, through to the trial.

“It has been an extremely traumatic time for her and I hope that the unanimous guilty verdicts and the sentence given, brings her some closure.

“I would also like to thank prosecuting counsel Kim Preston for her work in securing this conviction.

“This sentence reflects the hard work that is carried out by the Child Abuse Investigation Unit in bringing these offenders to justice and I would encourage anybody who has been a victim of childhood sexual abuse to report it to the police.”
