A Heathfield man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl in an East Sussex holiday caravan is starting a seven-year prison sentence.
Kevin Paul Horne, 42, a builder and decorator, of Cross-In-Hand, Heathfield, was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on Friday 1 April, having been convicted of two counts of sexual activity with a child at the Winchelsea Sands Holiday Village in the summer of 2020.
He will be a registered sex offender and was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order severely restricting his access to children under 18, both for life.
Detective Constable Lyndsey Jamison of the East Sussex Safeguarding Investigations Unit said: "Horne, who knew the girl, committed the two serious sexual offences against her late one evening while he was staying at the Village.
"The victim gave evidence in court which significantly helped in covnicting Horne.
"We will always investigate such reports and seek to achieve justice for victims wherever possible."
