Clipstone Man Jailed For Serious Sexual Offences

A man has been jailed for 17 years for serious sexual offences against two children. 49 Year Old Graham Wardle, of King John’s Road Clipstone, was found guilty of 15 counts including attempted rape, sexual assault and causing and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

Wardle was sentenced today (4th November) and Nottingham Crown Court were told he committed the offences over a period of years.

In 2014 one of his victims was admitted to hospital after having tried to take a number of tablets. At the time she said one of the reasons she’d done this was the sexual abuse she’d suffered from Wardle.

Detective Sergeant Dan Bebbington, from Nottinghamshire Police’s Public Protection, said: "I hope that today’s result offers them (the victims) some comfort in the knowledge that this man is now behind bars for his crimes, and I hope it encourages other victims of sexual abuse to come forward and speak to police.

"These victims have been extremely brave throughout a difficult case and I have the greatest respect for them.
