Fawdon paedophile jailed

A PAEDOPHILE who repeatedly sexually assaulted four children over a 10 year period has been jailed.

Twisted John Frederick Jones, formerly of Redland Avenue, in Fawdon, Newcastle, admitted a total of 13 offences, including two indecent assaults, two offences of indecency with a child, five offences of penetrative activity with a child and four offences of sexual activity with a child.

At Newcastle Crown Court on Thursday, the 32-year-old was given an indeterminate sentence.

It means Jones will have to serve a minimum of four years before he is eligible to be considered for parole and will only be released if he is no longer considered a danger.

The offences happened over a 10 year period between 2001 and 2011. Det Sgt Alison Tait said: I hope the sentence today will help his victims put these experiences behind them and move on with their lives.
