Sex crimes Centenier appeals
|Former policeman & convicted paedophile Ralph Mauger|
A former Jersey Centenier who was found guilty of five indecent assaults and jailed for two and a half years, is appealing his conviction and sentence this week.
Ralph Mauger, 77, was jailed in January and put on the sex offenders register for five years.
Judge Julian Clyde-Smith said on sentencing in January: "The court does not accept that all the offences can be described as isolated and this is a substantial sentence for a man of your age."
Throughout his trial, Mauger denied seven counts of indecent assault and one of inciting an act of gross indecency, involving girls aged six to 14.
The five counts that Mauger was found guilty of all allegedly occurred at a house in Grouville between 1998 and 2006.
