Waking up behind bars: the Helston pensioner who abused a young girl and left her 'consumed' by what happened.

Terrence Williams of Trengrouse Way has been convicted of a series of sex attacks in the 1980s and 90s.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, contacted police in May 2012 and told them the abuse started when she was under the age of 10 and continued for a number of years.

Truro Crown Court heard how it has damaged her life and left her angry because people "let it happen."

Giving evidence via video interview which was recorded in 2012, the victim said: "I look back on my childhood and all I can recall is stuff like that.

"I am consumed by this and everyone just let it happen; everyone was completely blind."

68 year old Williams who used to work at RNAS Culdrose will spend 16 years behind bars.

Sentencing Williams, Recorder SA Parish said he had subjected the girl to "sustained and degrading" sexual abuse.

Speaking after the hearing, case officer DC Jill Anderson said: "I think that this victim has suffered for a very, very long time and the verdicts today and the sentence reflect the severity of the offences committed against her."
