A man's been locked up for 17 years after being found guilty of indecently assaulting two girls and a boy in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980 in Nottinghamshire.
69-year-old Frederick Roy Salmon - formerly of Foxhill Road East in Carlton - was found guilty of 13 offences of sexual assaults and witness intimidation following an eight-day trial at Nottingham Crown Court.
The victims came forward over the last two years and reported the offences to the police.
A Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson said: "The victims have shown tremendous courage in coming forward to report these offences as well as throughout the eight days of a very traumatising trial.
"They had to relive some very difficult memories. The offences have had a very significant impact on their lives.
"But because of their bravery their attacker is now having to answer for the despicable crimes he committed so long ago and may have thought he had got away with.
"We hope this sentencing gives the victims some comfort and enables them to move forward with their lives.
"We also hope it encourages anyone else who has been affected by sexual abuse, no matter when it happened, to come forward so that Nottinghamshire Police can investigate thoroughly and seek justice for them."
