A Gorton pensioner has been jailed for six years following the outcome of an investigation into the historic sexual abuse of a four-year-old girl.
Aubrey Shaw, 82, of Collin Avenue was today sentenced and ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life at Manchester Crown Court.
Between June 2001 and June 2010, Shaw repeatedly sexually assaulted a young girl when she was in his care.
The girl – who was fours-years-old when the abuse began – came forward in 2014 to report the offences to police.
GMP Detective Constable Kate Burrows said: “Aubrey Shaw was a predator who took advantage of the trust placed in him to look after his young victim. He completely betrayed that trust and spent years abusing this girl.
“I would like to pay tribute to the victim for the courage that she has shown coming forward and I hope this sentence shows that we are prepared to investigate sexual assaults, no matter how much time has passed.”
