A paedophile who sexually abused a child may die in prison.

Ronald Williams has been locked up for nine years after admitting sexually abusing the girl for years.

The 78-year-old had initially pleaded not guilty to 11 charges, including one of possession of extreme porn, specifically a film of a person having sex with a horse .

He was due to go on trial in September but he changed his plea to five of the charges.

Williams, of Church Lane, Moldgreen , Huddersfield , admitted three counts of indecency with a child, one count of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault.

Judge James Spencer QC sentenced him to nine years’ imprisonment, of which he would serve half before being eligible for release on licence.

An NSPCC spokesperson said: “Williams repeatedly abused this girl to satisfy his own perverted sexual desires. Child sexual abuse can have devastating and long-last effects and it is imperative that Williams’ victim now receives all the support she needs to move forward with her life.

“The NSPCC runs a therapeutic service, called Letting the Future In, which helps children and young people who have been sexually abused rebuild their lives.”
