Indeterminate hospital order for sex predator

A 30-year-old man has been given an indeterminate hospital order after being convicted of a catalogue of serious sexual offences against two very young girls.

Simon Limb, formerly of Corporation Oaks, St Ann’s, pleaded guilty at Nottingham Crown Court to 18 offences.

The charges included:

– Thirteen counts of sexual assault of a child under 13

– Two counts of causing or inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity

– Two counts of possession of indecent photographs of a child

– One count of possession of prohibited images of children

The Ministry of Justice will determine when Limb can be released.

As well as his sentence, Limb has also been made subject of an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.

The incidents happened between 2006 and 2010 and also between 2015 and 2018.

His crimes first came to light after he was arrested in November 2018 for historic child sexual offences.

Officers seized his mobile phone and also found hundreds of indecent images.
