Eden man jailed for multiple historical child sex offences

Eden man Reinhard "Fritz" Drenkhahn has been sentenced to a maximum of four years in prison after being found guilty of multiple historical child sex offences.

Drenkhahn was found guilty last year of abusing two now-adult victims, who were aged in their early teens at the time of the assaults in the early 2000s.

He was sentenced to a non-parole period of two years in the Wollongong District Court by Judge Andrew Haeslar on Friday, February 14.

Judge Haeslar sentenced Drenkhahn, a former president of the Port of Eden Marina group and long-time local fisherman, after a jury in December found him guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault of a person under the age of 16, and sexual intercourse with a person aged between 10 and 16.

Drenkhahn will be eligible for parole in 2022.
