A South Coast man charged over a series of historical indecent assaults against another male in Sydney in the 1970s has been jailed for three and a half years.
The 71-year-old man faced seven counts of indecent assault of a male and one count of buggery.
He was convicted by Judge Norman Delaney in Campbelltown District Court on four indecent assault charges and the one count of buggery, with the other three charges also taken into account in the sentencing.
Court papers said the indecent assaults incidents happened in Airds between May 1977 and June 1979, while the buggery offence happened between May and December 1977.
The accused was in his 30s at the time the incidents happened.
Judge Delaney sentenced the man to an aggregate sentence of three and a half years jail, with a non-parole period of 19 months.
