An 89-year-old man who has been given a year's home detention for historic sex offences has been named as Geoffrey Cyril Trethewey.

Retired podiatrist Trethewey was sentenced last week by Wellington District Court judge Peter Butler on 42 charges of doing indecencies to children, unlawful sexual connection and attempted rape.

Trethewey's name was initially suppressed to allow him to appeal a judge's decision not to grant him name suppression, but the suppression has lapsed.

Trethewey's 12 victims were aged from 7 to their early teens from the mid-70s to the early 90s.
