Here are the names and faces of sex offenders who were sentenced to prison last year at courts across South Yorkshire.

From stalking and rape, to possessing obscene photographs of children and rape, these men committed some of the most heinous crimes for which they were sentenced to time behind bars.

Some victims took years to muster the courage to expose the culprits to authorities, and one offender was finally brought to justice for crimes committed over 30 years ago.

Not only did they have to serve time locked up, many will be listed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

South Yorkshire Police has urged victims who have suffered sexual abuse to come forward and report it, no matter how long ago it took place.

Call the force on 101.
