A man has been jailed for over three years for sexually assaulting a woman in her 80s on two separate occasions in High Wycombe.

Paul Herbert, 43, of Plym Close in Aylesbury was found guilty by a unanimous jury on two counts of sexual assault by touching following a three day trial at Aylesbury Crown Court, ending on May 24.

The court heard that Herbert sexually assaulted a woman in her 80s near High Wycombe on two separate occasions during the summer of 2017.

He was jailed for three years and four months yesterday (June 7) and sentenced to a sexual harm prevention order.

Investigating officer Dective Sergeant James Wood said: "Paul Herbert took advantage of a vulnerable woman who did not consent to any activity.

"I want to commend the victim and her family for their bravery in coming forward and reporting what was understandably an extremely upsetting assault.

"Hopefully this jail sentence will provide the victim and her family some comfort.

"Our team worked tirelessly to get this case to court and obtain justice for them. We take all reports of sexual offences extremely seriously and will relentlessly pursue perpetrators."
