Bus groper gets a suspended sentence
10:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
A MAN who groped two teenage girls on city buses has avoided a prison sentence.
Christopher Swift, of Matthew’s Way, Wootton, near Abingdon, was found guilty in June of two sexual assaults after a two-day trial.
A jury at Oxford Crown Court took two-and-a-half hours to convict the retired 62-year-old after hearing testimony from his two victims.
He touched a 17-year-old girl on a bus in November 2011 and a 16-year-old girl in September 2012 between Oxford and Kidlington.
On Thursday he was sentenced to a nine-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, with 12 months of supervision and a curfew for two months.
