Peter Kewley: Isle of Man 'sexual predator' jailed for assaulting children

A 68-year-old man who indecently assaulted four children has been jailed for ten-and-a-half years.

Peter Kewley, of Douglas in the Isle of Man, was earlier this month convicted of eight offences which took place between 1979 and 2014.

Passing sentencing at Douglas Court House, Deemster Anthony Cross described Kewley as a "ruthless sexual predator".

"This investigation has been extremely difficult and distressing for everyone involved," said a police spokesman.

"We are pleased that this investigation has now come to a successful conclusion for the victims and their families affected by the highly inappropriate and opportunistic actions of Mr Kewley, and we are hoping that this final process will be some form of closure for the victims involved."
