Ex-Jersey Centenier Ralph Mauger jailed for child abuse


The 77-year-old was chosen to carry the Olympic torch in Jersey





A Jersey police officer who was chosen to carry the Olympic torch has been jailed for 30 months for indecently assaulting young girls.

Former Centenier, Ralph Mauger from Grouville, was convicted of five counts of indecent assault last month.

The prosecution had asked for five years, but the judge, Julian Clyde Smith, said it was a substantial sentence for a 77-year-old man.

Centeniers are senior members of the honorary police force.

They are the only officers in Jersey able to charge and bail offenders.

Mauger will be on the sex offenders register for five years.

The charges at Jersey Royal Court related to offences committed on girls between 1998-2006.
'Immense courage'
Mauger will also have to pay £35,000 in legal fees, and £5,000 each to two of his victims. A hearing into compensation for the third victim will be heard next month.

Det Insp Paul Kennea said: "We recognise the immense courage of the victims in coming forward and giving evidence in this case of very serious crime, and we hope the verdict and today's sentencing will help them in coming to terms with what has been an extremely difficult time.

"States of Jersey Police takes this crime very seriously, and is committed to thoroughly investigating all allegations of abuse and violence."

Mr Kennea added that the force "will provide all the support and help we can to victims who report offences to us".

Mauger was chosen as a Jersey Olympic torch bearer but pulled out after the charges were brought in March
