A Soham man has been jailed for a total of four years for two counts of historic sexual abuse.
One of the charges involved a girl under the age of 14.
David John Paul, of Staploe Mews, was found guilty in a majority jury verdict of indecent assault on a female.
He was also found guilty by majority jury verdict of inciting a girl under fourteen years to have sex.
They are both historic sexual offences.

In a trial at the Old Bailey he was given a four year prison term for the indecent assault and four years to run concurrently for the inciting offence. He is expected to serve two years in prison before being let out on licence for the remaining two years.
He will be made the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) and will be added to the Barring list which means he will be unable to carry out certain employment on his release in the interests of public safety.
