Man sentenced for arranging sexual offences with a child – Aylesbury

A man has been sentenced to a total of two years and four months’ imprisonment for arranging sexual offences with a child following an investigation by the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU).

The 51-year-old man, Albert Jones, of Fosse Way, West Byfleet, Surrey pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to incite a girl aged 13 to 15 years to engage in sexual activity and one count of attempting to arrange sexual communication with a child at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on 6 September.

Jones was arrested following an intelligence led investigation on 4 July. On Thursday (4/10), Jones was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment for attempting to arrange in sexual communication with a child; two years and four months’ imprisonment for attempting to incite a girl aged 13 to 15 years to engage in sexual activity and two years and four months’ imprisonment for attempting to incite a girl aged 13 to 15 years to engage in sexual activity at Aylesbury Crown Court.

The sentences will run concurrently, meaning that Jones will serve a total of two years and four months’ imprisonment.

Detective Inspector Emily Evans, from SEROCU, who led the investigation, said: “Our priority is to protect children from sexual exploitation from those who seek to do them harm. The sentence reflects the seriousness of the offences Albert Jones attempted to commit.

“If anyone has been a victim of child sexual abuse, I would urge you to report it to your local police force via 101. We will always follow up allegations of abuse, no matter when they occurred. Victims can talk in confidence to experienced Investigators and we can also help them get access to a range of other support services.”
