Crewe man jailed for child sex offences
3:06pm Wednesday 13th February 2013 in News
A Crewe man who committed a series of sexual offences against children is behind bars.
Russell Haddock, of Clarence Grove, was sentenced to seven years in prison.
The thirty-year-old had denied committing six sexual offences against three girls under the age of 13.
But he was found guilty by a jury at Chester Crown Court on Monday February 11.
In addition to his jail term, Haddock is required to sign on to the sex offenders register for life.
Haddock committed his offences in the Crewe area between 2002 and 2005.
The investigation began when the victims of the offences came forward to police.
PC Stephanie Montague of Cheshire Constabulary’s Dedicated Rape Unit said: "The nature of this man′s crimes cannot be underestimated.
“He took advantage of his position of trust and preyed on vulnerable young girls who will live with the experience for the rest of their lives. It was incredibly brave of them to come forward.
“Sexual offences against children are amongst the most traumatic of crimes. We want victims to be assured that we are here to help.
“Anyone who has been subjected to this type of crime should feel confident that they will receive the support they need from the police and other support agencies we work alongside.
“Foremost, any victim of a crime such as this will be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve, and any allegations will be thoroughly investigated and with the needs of the victim as our main priority."
