A man who sexually assaulted two teenage girls at a Greater Manchester house has been jailed for 20 months.

Jason Wilson, 40 of Catterick Avenue, Sale, admitted three counts of sexual activity with a child and two counts of sexual assault.

A judge at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court ordered that he sign the sex offenders' register for 10 years.

Wilson attacked the girls on a number of occasions between 2006 and 2010, when they were aged 16 to 19.

'Terrible crimes'

Police said the abuse took place at a house in Sale.

Speaking after the sentence, Det Con Nicola Graham, said: "I must praise Wilson's victims for finding the strength and courage to speak out against him.

"He is twice their age and abused them for his own sexual gratification when they thought they were in a safe environment.

"Wilson has now rightly been sentenced for his terrible crimes and will have to live with both what he has done and the stigma of being a sex offender for the rest of his life."
