A Newtown man has been jailed for 21 months after being found guilty on sexual assault charges.

David Jarman, 52, of Gerddi Glandwr, Vaynor, Powys, denied three charges of sexual assault following the incident in January of last year, but was convicted by a jury at Mold Crown Court.

The court heard he had engineered a situation where he was alone with the woman so that he could sexually assault her. Judge Rhys Rowlands jailed him for 21 months.

The jury had been told Jarman had been cleared following an investigation by his employers – but Judge Rowlands said one of the people conducting the inquiry was a friend of the defendant’s instead of someone independent.

Jarman, who at the time was a team leader in child assessment but is now working as a painter and decorator, was ordered to register with the police as a sex offender for seven years. A five-year restraining order was also made not to approach the victim.
