A man has been jailed for sex offences against two boys.

Robert Andrew Bustard (25) of Wagstaff Lane, Jacksdale, previously appeared at Nottingham Crown Court where he admitted five counts of rape of a boy aged under 13, two counts of inciting a boy aged under 16 to engage in sexual activity, making indecent images of children and supply of a class B drug.

Appearing at court yesterday (Tuesday 30th September), he was jailed for 14 years, and will serve another six years on licence. He has also been placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.

DS Helen Lambert, who led the investigation, said: “Bustard is a dangerous individual who targeted young boys and took advantage of them in the worst way possible. He made a number of indecent images of children and stored these images on his computer. His victims have shown tremendous bravery but we are conscious of the impact that this has had on these young people and their families.

“The custodial sentence reflects the danger Bustard poses to children and it will remove the risk of harm to the public for a significant period.”
