A Man pleads guilty to 22 counts of sex offences against children

John Keevil, aged 52 of New Road, Landford, pleaded guilty at Bournemouth Crown Court on Monday (April 25) to 22 counts of sexual offences against four children that took place in Salisbury, Wiltshire between 1997 and 2010.

The judge sentenced him to 14 years in prison for his crimes.

The 52-year-old's victims are now all adult men living in Hampshire but were aged between nine and 17 when the crimes took place.

Detective Inspector John McGonigle said: “This was a Hampshire Constabulary lead investigation with assistance from Wiltshire Police.

“I would like to commend the victims in this investigation for the bravery and courage they have shown in coming forward after living with the horror of these attacks for many years.

“The trust they have invested in Hampshire Constabulary has meant we have been able to ensure that Keevil was finally held to account for these despicable crimes. I hope the result here today goes some way to giving them closure.”
