Per­vert jailed for sex­u­ally abus­ing three-year-old girl

A PER­VERT who sex­u­ally abused a girl when she was just three years old has been jailed un­der an ex­tended sen­tence.

Jean-Pierre Bois­nier was sen­tenced to four years in prison and will be on li­cence for a fur­ther 18 months.

The 59-year-old French­man, of High Street, Ash­ford, ad­mit­ted four charges of in­cit­ing a child to en­gage in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity.

Maid­stone Crown Court heard that in France in 1991 Bois­nier had been cau­tioned for ex­pos­ing him­self and in 1998 was con­victed of a sex­ual as­sault on a woman in a spa bath.

Leroy Red­head, de­fend­ing, said Bois­nier’s wife was hav­ing an af­fair when the lat­est of­fences were re­vealed. They sep­a­rated but were now get­ting back to­gether.

“He is not a se­rial of­fender,” Mr Red­head told Judge Jeremy Carey.

“I am sure you have had far worse cases.”

The judge said it needed lit­tle imagination to re­alise how trau­matic the ex­pe­ri­ence must have been for the vic­tim.

“The of­fences are of a very grave kind,” he said. “The de­fen­dant is highly cul­pa­ble. His at­ti­tude was of con­cern to an ex­pe­ri­enced pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer.”

There was a risk of se­ri­ous harm in fu­ture if his “de­praved at­ti­tude” was not ad­dressed. He had now recog­nised he needed help with his sex­ual de­vi­a­tion.

“He has be­haved in a griev­ously se­ri­ous way,” said Judge Carey. “The im­pact on a child who is abused can­not be un­der­es­ti­mated.”

For the pro­tec­tion of the pub­lic, it was nec­es­sary to ad­dress his deep-seated de­prav­ity. There was wor­ry­ing im­pul­sive sex­ual be­hav­iour.

The judge said he had im­posed the sen­tence so that Bois­nier would re­ceive ex­tended sex of­fender help.

Bois­nier was placed on the sex of­fend­ers’ reg­is­ter and banned from work­ing with chil­dren.
