A Worcester man has been jailed for nine years for child sex offences.

Michal Friga, aged 42, of Wylds Lane, was found guilty by jury at Worcester Crown Court on one count of sexual assault by penetration, for which received seven years in custody, and two counts of sexual assault by touching, for which he received a further two years in custody.

Friga has also been ordered to sign the sex offenders register for an indefinite period and has been made subject of an indefinitely running sexual harm prevention order.

His conviction follows a complex investigation run by acting detective sergeant Gemma Leighton from South Worcestershire’s Protecting Vulnerable People department.

Detective sergeant, Marie Green, Worcester Police’s Protecting Vulnerable People department said: “This was a complex and challenging case whereby the case relied on the testimony of the victims.

“Their strength and determination to speak openly about the abuse they had suffered was a credit to them for which they should be very proud of themselves.”

Victims of sexual abuse can go to www.wmrsasc.org.uk/ for help from West Mercia Rape and Sexual support centre.

To report an offence, victims can call 101. Always contact 999 in an emergency.
