Justice Served

A Herne Bay man has been jailed for sexual offences committed 20 years ago.

37 year old Scott Goldfinch of Cornwall Road in Herne Bay has been sentenced to six and a half years behind bars following a four day trial for a sexual offence committed in 1996. The victim, a young boy at the time, was left in Goldfinch’s care and only felt able to come forward once an adult.

Kent Police praised the victim’s bravery in coming forward and urged other victims to do likewise. The investigating officer stated that she hoped this shows anyone suffering from an unreported sexual offence that justice can be done and that it’s never too late to come forward.
