A MAN has been found guilty of subjecting a young girl to a five-year campaign of repeated sexual abuse.

Phillip Lewis stood trial at Oxford Crown Court, accused of six counts of sexual abuse of one child aged under 13.

The 40-year-old of Foxcroft Drive, Carterton had denied all of the charges against him and prosecutors said he told police he was ‘disgusted by the things being said about him.’

He was found guilty by a jury on Tuesday of one count of rape, one of assault by penetration, three of sexual assault and one of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

Outlining the case at the start of the trial last week prosecutor Claire Robinson told jurors the sexual abuse all took place in the early 2000s in West Oxfordshire.

Detailing the string of abuse she said Lewis would molest the girl on multiple occasions as well as ‘simulate intercourse’ with her.

She said Lewis would perform a sex act in front of the child on numerous occasions and that he also orally raped her.

During the trial jurors watched a recorded police interview which the victim gave.

In that interview she told officers that she was abused by Lewis on multiple occasions.

The girl - who cannot be named for legal reasons - said she felt ‘disgusting’ and thought if she spoke out she would get ‘told off.’

Asked by police how often the sexual abuse would take place she said it would happen 'a lot' and the incidents were 'pretty frequent.'

Lewis is due to be sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on November 19.
