A Doddington man who sexually assaulted a teenage boy and made sexual gestures towards another despite the boy backing away and saying no has been jailed for six months.
Jonas Jonaitis, 62, sexually assaulted the first boy by grabbing him in the village on March 16.
The second incident took place two months later on May 4 when Jonaitis approached another teenage boy as he waited for a friend outside his home in Doddington.
He started making sexual gestures towards the boy, who backed away and said no. However, Jonaitis continued and only left when the boy's friend arrived.
Jonaitis, of Wimblington Road, pleaded guilty to sexual assault and attempting to engage in sexual activity with a boy at Peterborough Crown Court on Wednesday (March 11) and was sentenced to six months in prison at the same court.
