A PAEDOPHILE has been jailed for more than nine years for engaging in sexual activity with a child.

Grant Fowke, of Arncliffe in Bracknell, appeared at Reading Crown Court on January 19, and was sentenced to nine years and four months in prison.

Fowke, a former handyman and pub worker, was also found guilty of one count of sexual contact with a child without penetration and three counts of voyeurism.

The five counts were broken down into seven years and four months for having sex with a minor, 16 months for sex with a child without penetration and eight months for voyeurism.

The 41-year-old has been added to the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

Judge Paul Dugdale served Fowke with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which will run until a further order is made.

Fowke has also been barred for life from working with children and vulnerable adults.
