Jail For 72yr Old

NEWBURY: A 72-year-old Berkshire man remanded by Newbury, Berks, magistrates for medical and psychiatric reports earlier this month was jailed for a year and ordered to pay £16 costs for ‘committing gross indecency’.

He had admitted the offence and said that he had committed about 100 similar offences over a two-year period.

The chairman of Newbury’s magistrates said: “But for your age, we would have been justified in sending you to Crown Court for sentence”.

A second man, aged 35, who admitted two offences of gross indecency was put on probation for two years.
