Investigating Officer Detective Constable Siobhan Nicholls, based at Windsor Police Station, said: “There are a number of reasons people choose to delay reporting sexual abuse.
“However, let it be shown through this case that if you find the courage to come forward, that you will be listened to, you will be believed and that justice can be found many years, if not decades later.
“I want to thank the victim and her family for their courage in coming forward and for entrusting us with the task of uncovering the truth. “
