"His behaviour was incredibly alarming and disturbing and I can't imagine what was going through his victim's mind when she realised what he had been doing.

"I want to commend her for her courage in coming forward and telling us about Lee's offending and I hope this sentence and the significant length of the restraining order allows her to heal and move on from must have been a traumatic time of her life.

"I also hope this case shows just how seriously we take these types of offences. Please be assured that we will not stand for sexual crimes of this nature. If you have been a victim of this type of crime, please report it to us as we are here to listen."
