The offences, committed between 2014 and 2020, included sexual assault by penetration, sexual assault, exposure and non-penetrative sexual activity.


Dupuis, 57, of Acrefield near Walton Summit, denied the charges but was found guilty after a two-week trial at Preston Crown Court.

He was jailed for 10 years and eight months and ordered to sign the sex offender register for life.

Det Sgt Lisa Hough, of South CID, said: “First and foremost I would like to commend the bravery of these victims who, after being abused by Dupuis were then forced by him to relive their ordeal by giving evidence at court.

“I welcome this significant sentence which takes a dangerous sexual predator off the streets for a significant time.

“I hope that this sentence may give other victims the confidence to come forward and speak to us safe in the knowledge that we will investigate professionally and sensitively and will do our best to put offenders before the courts.”
