Tony Jimmy pleaded guilty to charges of an act of indecency with a young person, as well as unlawful sexual intercourse with a child under 13 years of age.
He committed these acts when the victim who calls him uncle, was only 7 years old.
The incident occurred in December 2021. He escorted the victim to a shop and committed the act on their way back home.
The offending came to light early this year. The Judge noted that aggravating factors include; the gross breach of trust due to their family relationship, and the age difference- the defendant is 35 years old.
Jimmy is married with three children.
He received an end sentence of six years’ imprisonment for unlawful sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 13 years, and one year and six months for the charge of act of indecency.
