In October 2019, police were called to reports that a 10-year-old girl had been sexually assaulted by James Bosheya (05/11/68) of Coronation Gardens, Radliffe.

An investigation was launched and enquiries established that Bosheya had abused the victim on more than one occasion in 2019.

Bosheya was arrested and taken into police custody for questioning. He was subsequently charged with rape and attempted rape of a 10-year-old.

Bosheya pleaded guilty and, today (Friday 20 March 2020), was sentenced at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court to 11 years imprisonment.

Detective Constable Craig Bowring said:

“These were disgusting incidents – Bosheya satisfied his perverted sexual desires by targeting an innocent young girl.

 “Bosheya is now a convicted paedophile who is going to serve a long custodial sentence. The family are relieved that this ordeal is over, however it may have a lifelong impact on the victim.

“I would like to commend the young girl for her bravery in speaking to police officers. Despite the tragic circumstances, she greatly assisted us with our enquiries and helped us to secure Bosheya’s conviction and, subsequently, today’s result.

“On behalf of the family, I would like to thank St Mary’s Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) in Manchester and Children’s Social Services for their continued support.

“I would also like to use this opportunity to say that Greater Manchester Police takes all reports of this kind extremely seriously and officers are committed to launching thorough investigations which ultimately bring perpetrators to face justice.”
