|Northolt Man Jailed For Raping A Child|
Michael Shaw sentenced to 14 years for seven offences against same victim
A 69-year-old man from Northolt has been jailed for 14 years this Monday (11 March) after being found guilty of seven sexual offences at Isleworth Crown Court.
The charges against Michael Shaw of Stable Close, Northolt related to sexual activity with a child in the early 2000’s. Shaw would start tickling his victim, who was in her early teens and known to him, before sexually assaulting her.
The victim reported the abuse to police in June 2017.
Shaw was arrested on suspicion of rape and sexual assault in July 2017. Upon his arrest, he stated, “It’s not true.”
He was charged on 4 July 2018.
Detective Constable Paul Jackson, from the Met’s West Area Child Abuse Investigation Team, said, “Today’s result is a great achievement that removes a dangerous predator off the streets. Shaw preyed on a vulnerable young girl – grooming her for his own gratification.
“I would like to commend the bravery and courage of the victim who come forward to police after all these years, and describe the horrible memories that she endured whilst being abused by Shaw.”
