10-year jail term for child abuser.
Martin Upfield, of Liverpool Road, Worcester, was found guilty of 15 counts of sexual activity of with a child following a trial at Worcester Crown Court.
The 45-year-old abused his victim from the age of eight to when she was 14.
His victim, who is now an adult, contacted the police in 2010 about the historic abuse she had suffered at the hands of Upfield.
Acting Detective Inspector Martin May, who leads the south Worcestershire Public Protection Unit, said: "Upfield subjected a young girl to sustained sexual abuse for many years and this was committed on a weekly basis.
"I hope that seeing the likes of Upfield convicted and imprisoned for many years will help other victims of sexual abuse to have the confidence to take steps to end their suffering and get in touch with the police."
