Kirby pleaded guilty to rape after 14 years.

Kirby pleaded guilty to rape after 14 years.

A RAPIST has been jailed for six years for a attack on a woman 14 years ago, after he was identified through advances in forensic technology.

Wayne Kirby, 37, of Dabbs Hill, Northholt, was arrested in October 2007 after being identified through DNA samples taken at the time of the attack.

Kirby pleaded guilty to rape on October 31 at Southwark Crown Court, and was sentenced yesterday to six years in prison.

He will also have to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life.

On May 18, 1993, the day of the attack, Kirby climbed through the window of his victim’s ground-floor hostel room in Dove House Court, Kittiwake Road, Notholt.

The victim, who was at home looking after her sick baby, had left the window open to let in some air when she went to bed, just before midnight.

She woke up a little later, fearing there was someone in her room.

Kirby then attacked and raped her, as her six-month-old baby slept in bed next to them.

Police arrested four suspects at the time, but their DNA profiles did not match any on the National DNA Database, and they were released.

DC Lana Kettel, who led the investigation for Greenwood Police, said: “I hope this case will give other potential victims the strength to come forward and report previously unreported offences to police.

“I’d like to reassure the community that the police will prosecute offenders for offences that have remained undetected for a number of years.”

In 2002 the Sapphire Cold Case Investigation Team was set up to investigate all unsolved rape allegations reported to the Met.

A Tommy Robinson supporter branded the Home Secretary a “Muslim terrorist” and threatened to have him “hung, drawn and quarter” if anything happened to the far right leader, a court heard.

Wayne Kirby, 49, posted the comment on Sajid Javid’s Facebook page last summer threatening to kill him by the medieval death penalty technique.

The Facebook post was read out in court which stated: “You Muslim terrorist.

“If anything happens to Tommy Robinson you will die right after.

“You will be hung, drawn and quartered by the real British people under the constitution of the Magna Carta.

“Get ready to die.”

The far right supporter’s threat was picked up by the home secretary’s office manager Sophie Bolsover who reported it to the police who then raided his home in Northolt, West London.

Wearing jeans and a green jacket, Kirby appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today (Mon) for sentencing.

He previously pleaded guilty to sending the racially fuelled threat to the Home Secretary on June 14 last year.

Defending, Mr Jonah Walker-Smith said Kirby’s threat was “silly and ignorant.”

He said: “Referencing to being hung, drawn and quartered under the constitution of the Magna Carta shows his ignorance and that it was a fantasy.

“It was idle and spur of the moment rather than premeditated.

“I’d think the Home Secretary is sufficiently robust.

“It was a silly comment during a moment of anger and he does show remorse.”

But Chief Magistrate, Emma Arbuthnot refuted this and said: “Why should politicians put up with this type of abuse?

“He might deny being a far right advocate but he obviously has extreme views.”

Kirby of Northolt, West London, was arrested on September 25 on suspicion of “sending an electronic communication namely a Facebook post which conveyed a threat for the purpose of causing distress or anxiety to the recipient.”

Kirby will be sentenced later.
