Kettering man given five-year sentence for two counts of sexual assault

A 65-year-old Kettering man has been given a five-year sentence for two counts of sexual assault. 

David Smith, known locally as Milky, from Centre Parade, was sentenced at Northampton Crown Court.

The sentencing follows a lengthy investigation by the RISE team into child sexual exploitation relating to this case. 

Detective Inspector Rich Tompkins leads the team which is dedicated to tackling CSE. He said:

"This was a classic case of child sexual exploitation, with young people given gifts – in this case alcohol - by a significantly older man who did so for his own sexual gratification.

"Reducing CSE is a priority for Northamptonshire Police and our partner agencies who are working hard to support victims and bring to justice anybody who exploits children in this despicable way. 

"Any young person regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity and sexuality can be at risk of being sexually exploited. I would urge anyone with any concerns about themselves or someone they know to call Northamptonshire Police on 101, or the Child Safeguarding Team on 0300 126 1000.”
