Albert John Vaughan Williams, a 52-year-old man from Llandeilo, has been convicted of multiple non-recent sexual offences committed against teenage boys and one count of witness intimidation.
A four day trial started on June 29 at Swansea Crown Court where the guilty verdict was delivered. He was remanded and then sentenced on Wednesday, July 28, to six years in prison and a life-long Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) was placed on him.
Williams was arrested in October 2015 after victims reported the non-recent incidents to Dyfed-Powys Police. The sexual assaults took place between 1995 and 2015.
The force’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) conducted a thorough investigation and provided specialist support for the victims who came forward.
Detective Sergeant Andy Davies said: “This is a positive outcome for the victims, the wider community and for our CID team who has been working on this investigation for a long period of time. I would like to commend the victims who found the courage to come forward and report the despicable crimes committed against them that have left lasting psychological damage.
“We have skilled detectives and forensics experts who can investigate reports of non-recent sexual abuse such as this. I hope this outcome will encourage anyone else who has suffered non-recent sexual abuse to please report it to police by calling 101.”
The safety, welfare and protection of vulnerable people is an absolute priority for Dyfed-Powys Police.
