72 year old male jailed for historical sexual offences

MERSEYSIDE Police, on Monday, 28 November 2016, welcomed the sentencing of a 72 year old man for historical sexual offences. Joseph Catton, of Sefton Moss Villas, Litherland, was found guilty after trial of 2 offences of rape and 8 offences of indecent assault and sentenced to 16 years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court. The offences took place during the 1970's and 1980's.

Detective Inspector Jacqueline Fitzpatrick said:- "Catton's victims have shown an immense amount of bravery coming forward. Time should never be a barrier to obtaining justice and I hope today's sentence gives his victims some sense of closure and vindicates their decision to come forward. Merseyside Police takes every report of sexual offences extremely seriously, whether or not they are recent, and has dedicated officers who are specially trained to both thoroughly investigate allegations and make sure that those reporting them are properly supported. I would like to take this opportunity to reassure anyone who has suffered a sexual offence that if you can find the courage to come forward and speak to us, we will deal with you sensitively and make sure that reports are properly and thoroughly investigated."

People can call Merseyside Police on:- 101. Information can also be passed to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
