Roger Walsh sentenced for sex offences on under 16's

THE sentencing, on Thursday, 13 April 2017, of Roger Walsh, aged 46, from Litherland, for a series of sexual offences, has been welcomed by Merseyside Police. Roger Walsh, admitted 2 counts of rape and 8 counts of indecent assault, on 2 boys under the age of 16, between 1979 and 1990. He has been sentenced to a total of 7 years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court and must also sign the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely. Detective Inspector Paul Grounds of the Merseyside Police UNITY team said:- "Walsh's victims have shown incredible bravery to come forward. Time should never be a barrier to obtaining justice and I hope this sentence gives his victims some sense of closure. Merseyside Police thoroughly examines all cases, whether or not they are recent, and has dedicated Officers within the Force who are specially trained to investigate allegations. 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 professionally."

People can call Officers in the Force's UNITY team on:- 0151 777 1382. Information can also be passed to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
