A man who repeatedly raped a 10 year old girl has been jailed.
38 year old Collin Grayson, of Ascot Avenue, Sale was found guilty of four charges of sexual assault by touching and four charges of sexual assault by penetration of a female under 13 at an earlier hearing.
Grayson has been jailed for six years imprisonment at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court and ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life.
Between 2004 and 2006 Grayson sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl at an address in the Sale area.
Detective Constable Nicola Graham, from Trafford Public Protection Investigation Unit, said, “After several years of anguish the victim has today seen some justice done.
“She has tremendous courage reporting these incidents to the police and helping us with our investigations.
“I hope that she can now begin to put these awful experiences behind her and move forward with her life.
“We take all reports of sexual abuse and rape seriously no matter how long ago they happened and if anyone is in the same position as these women, I want them to have the confidence to come forward so we can have justice done for them too.”
