Jailed for 13 years after historic sex abuse case

First published in

A TOTTON man has began a 13 year jail sentence for historic sex abuse after his young victim reduced her teacher to tears.

Mark Maynard, 57, was convicted at Southampton Crown Court of five charges of sexual assault.

His offending came to light when the girl approached her teacher at a Southampton school and told her “I want him to stop”.

The woman told the court how she then took the matter to the headmaster and was so upset that she burst into tears.

Maynard, of Water Lane, Totton, denied the allegations, saying they had not happened.

But jurors disbelieved him, taking about 75 minutes to reach their verdict.
