A 74-year-old has been jailed for 16 years after being found guilty of multiple historical sex offences.

John Rombach, also known as Tony, was sentenced at Stafford Crown Court on April 15 after being found guilty on April 1 of 13 counts of non-recent sex offences.

Rombach, of Furness, Glascote, Tamworth, was found guilty of rape, nine counts of indecent assault, and three further serious sex offences.

The court heard the offences took place between the late 1980s and 2014.

Detective Constable Jo Morrison, of Staffordshire Police said after the case: “It took great courage for the victim to come forward and give evidence allowing us to bring Rombach before the courts.

“We will always do whatever it takes to bring offenders to justice, while ensuring victims and their families are offered the support they need.”

Anyone who has suffered sexual abuse, or suspects others may be subject to sexual abuse, is urged to contact Staffordshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
