Swavesey man who groped woman given suspended prison sentence

A Swavesey man has been given a suspended sentence and ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work for sexually assaulting a woman.

Alvin Scott, 53, of Priory Avenue, made inappropriate comments and groped the woman on Friday July 21.

Scott denied the charges of sexual assault but was found guilty following a five-day trial at Cambridge Crown Court.

He was sentenced last Thursday to 12 months in prison, suspended for two years, ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work and must pay £2,000 compensation to his victim.

Scott has also been placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years.

Det Con Andrew Moralee said: “I would like to commend the victim for showing tremendous courage in coming forward to police.

“This sentence shows the tough stance the criminal justice system takes towards sexual assault and will hopefully make potential offenders think twice before harming someone.”
