Man gets jail term for child sex offences

A SUFFOLK man who admitted a string of child sex offences has been jailed for six years.

Paul Weavers, 45, would score the victim of the offences out of ten during the sexual assaults and would give her �1 for every point he awarded her, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

Weavers, formerly of Sutton, near Woodbridge, but now living in Ipswich, admitted ten offences of sexual activity with a child, two charges of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, two charges of sexual assault by penetration and one of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.

Jailing him for six years, Judge David Goodin said Weavers was aware of the seriousness of the “shocking catalogue” of offences he had committed and that his remorse for what he had done was real.

Matthew Gowen, prosecuting, told the court that Weavers had indecently touched the girl and had got her to indecently touch him. “He would score her out of ten, with ten being really good and she would get �1 for every point he gave her,” said Mr Gowen.
