A Scarborough man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the historic sexual abuse of a young girl.

Peter Philip Wallis, 59, now of Thornden Buildings, Selby, appeared at York Crown Court on Friday 21 November 2014, when he pleaded guilty to six counts of rape, three counts of indecent assault and one count of gross indecency.

The offences took place between 1985 and 1994 in Scarborough against the victim, who is now aged 39.

Detective Constable Nadine Evans, of Scarborough Protecting Vulnerable Persons Unit, said: “Wallis is an evil man who subjected his victim to sustained abuse over a number of years.

“He has thankfully been imprisoned for a substantial length of time for his utterly appalling crimes.

“I would like to take the opportunity to praise the victim for her courage in coming forward and reporting these distressing crimes she was subjected to by Wallis.”

DC Evans added: “It is never too late for victims of sexual abuse to come forward and report the offences to the police. If you have been subjected to this type of crime, I urge you to come forward and get the help and support you need.”

Anyone who has been the victim of any kind of abuse should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.

Victims can also seek independent advice, support and services from Bridge House, North Yorkshire’s Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC). Please call 01904 669339.Or visit www.turntobridgehouse.org.
