APAEDOPHILE who sub­jected two chil­dren to sex­ual abuse has been jailed.

Glyn Charles Lord, 53, from Mac­cles­field, was found guilty of his­toric sex of­fences af­ter a trial at Ch­ester Crown Court.

Lord was found guilty of in­de­cently as­sault­ing one girl when she was of pri­mary school age, the court heard.

He was also con­victed of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing an­other girl twice on the same day around 10 years later.

Lord, who also went un­der the name Glyn Fletcher, of Nixon Street, was jailed for five years.

When he is re­leased will have to sign the sex of­fend­ers reg­is­ter in­def­i­nitely.

Speak­ing af­ter the sen­tenc­ing a spokesper­son for the NSPCC said: “Lord’s cam­paign of abuse against two young, vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren is heart­break­ing and will have had a long-last­ing im­pact on both vic­tims.

“We com­mend the brav- ery of these women to come for­ward. Thanks to them Lord has now been brought to jus­tice and, while in prison, can pose no risk to chil­dren.”

The jury heard that Lord be­gan tar­get­ing one vic­tim and pro­ceeded to as­sault her over a num­ber of years.

Paulin­ius Barnes, pros­e­cut­ing, said: “She de­scribes him as friendly and said she looked for­ward to see­ing him.”

Mr Barnes said: “He would get her to sit on his knee astride him. She only re­alised what was hap­pen­ing when she got older.

“On an­other oc­ca­sion he lay on top of her. At the time she felt squashed and said it hurt. On one oc­ca­sion Lord told her not to tell any­one be­cause no one would be­lieve her. She de­scribes one in­ci­dent when he was ag­gres­sive to­wards her when she re­fused to go with him.”

The sec­ond vic­tim claims Lord sex­u­ally as­saulted her twice in one day. Mr Barnes said: “He touched her and got on top of her. She didn’t like it and told her par­ents, who went to the po­lice.” The trial was heard by recorder, Eric Lamb.
