A 34-year-old man has avoided jail after he was convicted of carrying out a sexual assault.

John Draper, of Whittenham Close, Reading, was found guilty by a jury of committing the offence on August 2 last year against a child under 13 in Wallingford.

He was yesterday handed an 18-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, with 180 hours of unpaid work and two years supervision.

Draper was also made subject to a sexual offences prevention order and will be on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.

The case was heard in Oxford Crown Court.
