Surrey Police said Thomas Pattison, 32, has been jailed for four years and nine months.

Police said evidence of his offending was uncovered when one of his victims reported to the police that she had been in a sexual relationship with Pattison. Soon after this a second victim came forward, Surrey Police added.

Police said Pattison’s phone was seized by officers and messages were found which corroborated one of the accounts and witness enquiries confirmed the other.

The sentencing at Guildford Crown Court was part heard on Tuesday, February 6 with the victims present but was adjourned until the judge was able to confirm the sentence later that week.

On Friday, February 9, Surrey Police said Pattison was sentenced for seven counts of penetrative sexual activity with a child, having pleaded guilty at a pre-trial hearing previously.

Police said he will serve his time in prison and will then be released on license. He will also be subject to a 10-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and will be on the Sex Offenders Register for life, Surrey Police added.

Detective Constable Chris Wasley, who led the investigation said: “Thomas Pattison demonstrated a series of predatory sexual offending against young girls. He has now been sentenced for his crimes.

“We commend the strength and courage of the two victims throughout the investigation, and for being present at Court for this sentencing.”
