0 comment

Sixty-nine-year-old Thomas Gerrity, of Sandhurst Avenue, Bispham, Blackpool has been sentenced to twenty years in prison and an extra four years on an extended licence on Thursday 4th July following a trial at Preston Crown Court

Gerrity (pictured) was found guilty of three counts of assault by penetration, six counts of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault. His two victims were both under the age of ten when they were assaulted.

Det. Insp Andrew Crook, of Lancashire Constabulary, said: ‘Firstly, I want to praise his two victims, who have shown such strength and resilience throughout this process. They should be so proud of themselves for their bravery.

Gerrity’s crimes are nothing short of abhorrent, and I and my team welcome the sentence handed down on him.

I hope that this shows other victims of sexual offences that we will listen to you, we will investigate, and we will do all that we can to get you justice. If you, or someone you know have been a victim of a sexual offence, please talk to us.

You can contact us on 101, or anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.’
