Investigative officer Heidi Weir and Detective Constable Jacqui Robinson, from Darlington’s Safeguarding Team, led the police investigation.

Heidi said: “The victim in this case has shown enormous strength throughout the investigation. I am so proud that on the day of giving evidence she was able to face her abuser in the witness box and tell the jury what he did.

“I believe that the bravery shown will assist her in her recovery and healing process.”

Anyone who is suffering sexual abuse should come forward and report it to police – call 101, or 999 in an emergency.
