PICTURED: The 24-year-old jailed after pulling women's tops down and inflicting 'campaign of harassment'
A 24-YEAR-OLD who carried out a 'campaign of harassment' against six women has been jailed.
Alan Jevons touched the women, pulled their tops down and made comments about what they looked like and wore.
Despite genuine fears about being made to give evidence his victims reported Jevons to police and he was jailed for three years on Monday.
Detective Constable Becki Kelly, from Notts Police’s public protection team, said: “This sentence reflects the seriousness of a campaign of harassment and is testament to the victims being brave enough to come forward and disclose what was happening to them.

“These victims had genuine fear at being made to give evidence. However, with support, they showed great strength and determination not to allow Jevons to get away with his crimes and also not to allow anyone else to be subjected to the abuse that they had suffered over the years.”
Jevons, formerly of Crompton Road, Pleasley, was found guilty of 14 counts of sexual assault and indecent exposure at Nottingham Crown Court in February.
He received one year in prison for indecent exposure and three years for sexual assault. The sentences will run concurrently.
Prosecution barrister in the case Grace Hale said: "What he did was criminal offending and it was right that he was charged in accordance with their complaints.
"I hope this brings closure to all of the complainants."
