A former West Norfolk man, serving eight-and-a-half years for sex offences against a young girl, has been jailed for a further 14-and-a-half years at Norwich Crown Court.

John Slater, 73, was sentenced on Wednesday after he was convicted of nine sex offences involving four young girls and a boy, following a trial.

The offences were committed between 1992 and 1996 and between 2003 and 2004.

During the trial, the jury heard how Slater had moved from Terrington St Clement to Spain in 2004, but was convicted in 2011 of sexually abusing a young girl and jailed. He served some of his sentence in Spain, but moved back to the UK for the rest.

He was charged with the latest offences last May.

Detective Constable Elaine Goodall said: “The victims have had to wait a long time for this to come to court, whilst the Spanish process concluded. They, and the witnesses, have been very brave giving evidence during the trial and we are pleased this case has resulted in this sentence.”
