A man from Luton has been jailed for 12 years for sexually abusing a child over an eight-year period more than half a century ago.
Yosef Ben-Miriam, 61, of Runham Close, was convicted of 15 counts of sexual offences, including indecent assault and unlawful sexual intercourse with a young girl, following a five-day trial, which concluded on 7 June. He was sentenced at Luton Crown Court on Wednesday (10 July).
The abuse began in 1968 when the girl was only four-years-old and continued until she was 12.
Throughout her life, memories had been triggered and she starting to recall what had happened to her. She disclosed everything to police in 2016, which resulted in Ben-Miriam being arrested in October 2016 and charged with a number of offences.
