A man has been jailed for four years for sexually abusing young children on the Isle of Wight
Sergeis Jakobovskis, now aged 55 and of Beatty Court in Andover, abused one of the girls a number of times at an address in Ryde in 2011 when she was under the age of 10.
Isle of Wight Crown Court heard that Jakobovskis also sexually assaulted another girl, aged 16, around this same period.
The victims courageously reported this to police in 2018.
Following a lengthy and thorough investigation, Jakobovskis was charged with sexual assault, and two counts of assaulting a girl under the age of 13 by touching.
He denied the offences, and the case went to trial on 10 October 2022.
A jury found him guilty of all three charges and he was subsequently remanded in custody to appear at the Crown Court again today (Tuesday 3 January 2023) for sentencing.
At the hearing, he was jailed for a total of four years.
