"This court is not in the business of passing cruel, degrading and inhumane sentences but to prison you must go."
London, June 14 - A man who sexually abused a schoolgirl of his granddaughter's age in a bus driver's shack has been jailed for a year in Britain at the age of 94.

He is believed to be the oldest sex offender ever to be jailed in Britain.

Frederick Smith, a retired travel agent, admitted four offences of indecent assault between 1972-1982 and an offence of indecency with a child between 1972-76, Daily Mail reported.

Sentence has been adjourned to see if the prison service could accommodate his extensive personal needs.

Smith, of Suffolk city, was described as vile by Judge David Goodin, saying: As frail as you are, bent over your frame, justice cries out that you be sent to prison for your crimes.

This court is not in the business of passing cruel, degrading and inhumane sentences but to prison you must go.

You will carry the shame of your offending to your grave.
