SEXUALLY ABUSED AT 9 BY GRANDAD

A survivor of abuse has bravely waived her anonymity to tell how she was sexually assaulted from the age of nine - by her depraved grandad. Natasha (Tasha) Allen, 22, of Derby, was abused by her grandad Reginald Allen, 71, of Manor Road, Ashbourne, for a number of years. The pensioner was jailed in March (2014) for four years after he admitted abusing the girl regularly between the ages of nine and 14. Derby Crown Court heard that when Allen, 71, was first questioned by police in 2009 about the abuse he denied any sexual contact with the girl and no charges were brought against him. But in 2011, he told his wife what he had done and the case was re-opened by the police. He admitted some of the abuse to officers. Reginald Allen, of Manor Road, Ashbourne, admitted charges of indecent assault, indecency with a child, sexual activity with a child and causing a child to engage in sexual activity. He must sign the sex offenders register for life.
