"Each victim has suffered a great deal of emotional and psychological trauma as a result of the abuse they have been subjected to.

"They have both shown great courage and strength to come forward with their complaints to support police with a prosecution and then appear in court to give evidence.

"Their bravery is admirable, and I hope this sentencing can bring them and their families some sense of closure.”
