Birmingham man Arthur Davies jailed for abusing girls

A Birmingham man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for abusing young girls, including three counts of assaulting a girl under 13.

Arthur Davies, 59, from Weoley Castle, who had previously been found guilty on all 28 charges against him, was also put on the sex offenders register.

Police say Davies abused six girls during a period of more than 10 years.

He was sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court where he had been convicted on 15 December last year.

Det Con Sarah Batsford, from West Midlands Police, said: "The seasoned detectives who investigated this complex case were shocked by the nature of Davies' crimes.

"We welcome the sentence, but realise this is little consolation to the six victims whose lives have been irrevocably damaged by this man and his vile acts."
