Nuneaton pedophile jailed for sex offenses dating back to 2010s

A MAN has been jailed for 20 years for non-recent child sex offenses in Nuneaton.

The sentencing of William Inglis, 44, of Gilfil Road, followed an investigation by specialist child abuse officers from Warwickshire Police.

Inglis committed the crimes more than five years before survivors bravely came forward and told police what happened to them in the 2010s.

He was arrested and questioned by officers in December 2021 after one of his victims reported the abuse to a teacher. She was 11 years old when she was subjected to months of sexual abuse.

A second victim disclosed the offenses to police the following February. She was subjected to years of sexual abuse as a teenager.

An investigation was launched by officers who gathered evidence of Inglis’ crimes and later charged him with the offences.

He was jailed at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday after previously pleading guilty to one count of sexual assault, two counts of assaulting a girl by touching and three counts of engaging in penetrative sexual activity with a girl aged between 13 and 15 years.

“A Dangerous Man”

He received a 15-year prison sentence extended by five years after the judge deemed him a dangerous offender.

Det Con Surj Hundal, who investigated the case, said: “Without the bravery of the survivors, Inglis’ crimes would never have come to light and he would never have been brought to justice.

“I hope this gives confidence to other survivors of sex offences, no matter when they happened, that there are people who will listen and support will be given to you.

“We are committed to catching those responsible for this type of crime.”
