Worcester Man Jailed For Abusing Two Young Girls

A man from Worcester has been sentenced to eight years in prison for the sustained abuse of two young girls in the 1980s and 1990s.

William Page, aged 47 of Stallard Road, Worcester, was found guilty of 10 counts of indecent assault at Hereford Crown Court on 25 January.

The offences occurred between 1985 and 1995 and were committed against one girl aged between seven and 11, and a second girl between the ages of 10 and 14. They all occurred in Worcester and Kidderminster.

Page was sentenced at Hereford Crown Court yesterday to eight years imprisonment by Judge Pearce-Higgins. He was also served with a Sexual Offences Prevention Order and will be a registered sexual offender for an indefinite period.

Detective Sergeant Michael Patz of the Worcester Public Protection Unit, who was the supervising officer for the case, said: “Page targeted two young girls over a number of years and sexually abused them without conscience.

“Perhaps he though he had got away with it, so I would like to thank his victims for coming forward many years later and then persevering with their support of our prosecution throughout a difficult and sensitive case.”
