Barnsley sex offender jailed for almost 15 years

A Barnsley man has been jailed for 14 years, six months, after being found guilty of non-recent child sexual offences.

Jamie Miller, formerly of Carlton Street, Barnsley, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court last Tuesday (10 March) and was found guilty of one count of rape and two counts of sexual assault by penetration against an 13-year-old girl. He was also found guilty of three counts of sexual assault upon an 30-year-old girl.

The court heard how Miller had sexually abused one of the victims between 2003 and 2006 and the second victim was sexually abused between 2014 and 2017.

In 2017, one of the victims, who cannot be named for legal reasons, came forward to report the abuse she had suffered. An investigation was launched by Barnsley’s Protecting Vulnerable People (PVP) team, which led to Miller’s arrest in 2018.

DC Belinda Dhami who led the investigation, said: “First of all I want to commend the bravery of both of Miller’s victims, who after suffering his horrific abuse had the courage to come forward and report what had happened to her.

“I am pleased that Miller has been found guilty and the sentence passed will see him spend a significant amount of time behind bars.”

“While the abuse endured by his victims can never be undone, I hope that this sentence can act as the first step towards recovery.”
