A PENSIONER from Bromsgrove, who sexually assaulted a disabled seven-year-old, has avoided jail after breaching a prevention order by having contact with a 12-year-old girl.

Victor Galvin, previously of Windsor Green, previously admitted breaching the sexual offences prevention order when he appeared at Worcester Crown Court on Tuesday, August 21.

Galvin, aged 83, now of Houndsfield Grove, Birmingham, admitted breaching the order between May 1 and June 1 this year by having contact with the girl, which he was prohibited from doing by an order made on December 5, 2014.

We previously reported in 2014 how Galvin, then aged 79, was convicted of assaulting and making indecent photographs of young children.

Galvin had become friendly with the girl and her mother after a chance meeting in Bromsgrove, taking the girl's picture and touching her breasts.

He appeared in court for sentencing in relation to the breach on September 4, and was given eight months in prison, suspended for 24 months.

His sexual offences prevention order will continue.
