A 47-year-old man has been sentenced to 14 years imprisonment and made the subject of an indefinite Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) after being convicted of a number of sexual offences against a boy over a 10 year period.

Graham Pearce, of Oldbury Road, Chertsey, was found guilty of two counts of rape of a male, seven counts of indecent assault on a male, four counts of committing gross

PEARCE GRAHAMindecency with a child, two counts of sexual assault on a male, and seven counts of making indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of a child and was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on Friday, 26 July. In addition to the sexual offences he was also found guilty of one count of wilfully assaulting a young person under 16.

The offences occurred between 1995 and 2005 while Pearce was living in Staines-upon-Thames.

Detective Constable Dion O’Shea, investigating, said: “The lengthy custodial sentence reflects the severity of the offences committed and ensures that a dangerous and manipulative man is behind bars for the foreseeable future. I would like to commend the victim for the bravery they showed in coming forward and hope that this sentence can provide them with some form of closure.

“Surrey Police takes all allegations of sexual offences extremely seriously, whether recent or historic, and I hope the sentence given in this case encourages other victims of historic abuse to come forward.”
