Face of Nottinghamshire man who sexually abused girl as young as four

Background

An elderly paedophile has been jailed for sexually abusing three young girls – including one under the age of five years old. Michael McCafferty had previously denied four counts of indecent assault and three counts of making indecent images of a child but was found guilty by a jury during a trial at Derby Crown Court.

The 74-year-old’s offending, which began in the early 1990s, came to light when a woman came forward to report that McCafferty had abused her, as a young child, for almost a decade. She had been subjected to sexual touching and digital penetration by McCafferty from the age of just four years old.

Two other women later came forward reporting that McCafferty had sexually touched and kissed them when they were young teenagers. McCafferty, of Church Lane, Selston, was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment by a judge at Derby Crown Court on Tuesday, June 28. He will also remain on licence for a year after his release.

People in Nottingham ‘would rather stay in’ after city incident – read more here.

Speaking on Tuesday (June 28), detective Constable Gavin Owen, officer in the case said: “I cannot speak highly enough of the brave women who came forward to report these appalling crimes to police. They showed great courage and remained steadfast throughout a lengthy investigation and trial.

“I know how much today’s sentencing means to them, particularly after McCafferty put them all through the secondary ordeal of a trial after denying the abuse that he inflicted upon them. Nothing can change the impact this abuse has had on their lives, but I hope that today’s sentencing provides them with a sense of closure and security to know that McCafferty is behind bars and unable to hurt anyone else.

“I also hope that the publicity around this case empowers anyone out there who has been affected by sexual violence or abuse to speak up and seek support. The survivors in this case came forward in recent years, despite the onset of this offending happening in the 90s. This shows that even cases of non-recent sexual abuse can result in a conviction. If you feel able, please report what happened to you – we will listen, we will support you, and we will not judge.”

Police have recently added a Rape and Sexual Assault reporting tool to their website. Here you can report something that’s happened to you, or to someone else. To access it, click here. People can contact police using the following methods:
