A 43-year-old man has been jailed for 12 years for sexual offences against a child.

Ian Alexander Scott, also known as Ian Alexander Docherty, of Beech Tree Avenue in Mansfield Woodhouse, pleaded guilty to 15 charges of sexual activity with a boy under the age of 16 and two charges of causing a child under the age of 13 to watch a sexual act.

The offences began in 2009 as online contact with a 12-year-old boy and over a three-year period evolved into grooming.

Scott, who was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday 4 March 2016, is also subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and will sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.
