Detective Constable Trisha Wells, of Lincolnshire Police, said: “They will never forget the horror of what has happened, but I hope the conclusion of this case today and the jailing of this evil man will bring them a degree of closure and that they can start to rebuild their lives.”

Terry Maughan, jailed for seven years for raping a teenager

Terry Maughan, jailed for seven years for raping a teenager

A teenage party guest was raped while being gripped round the throat in a terrifying attack which lasted up to an hour-and-a-half.

Terry Maughan took advantage of the 17-year-old’s vulnerable drunken state after she ended up in a home alone with him at the end of the night.

A court heard he threw her to the floor, put his hand round her throat and tightened his grip when she tried to shout out.

Now the 23-year-old has been jailed for seven years after a jury at Newcastle Crown Court convicted him of rape.

Judge Penny Moreland told Maughan: “There was a gathering of young people at that house and (the victim) was extremely drunk that night.

“One by one the young people left and you were still downstairs when she was the last one left.

“You threw her to the floor, your hand on her throat so she couldn’t move and you raped her, tightening your grip if she tried to shout out.

“This was, on her account, a sustained incident. She thought she had been the victim of your offending for one-and-a-half hours.

“She was particularly vulnerable because she was young and extremely drunk.”

Maughan, of Denton View, Blaydon, Gateshead, had denied raping the girl but was found guilty after a trial.

Prosecutor Matthew Bean said the offence has had a bad effect on the victim.

He said: “She says following the offence she has become withdrawn and is nervous about leaving her home alone.

“It has not only affected her but her family members.

“She feels she is unable to go out socialising with friends, she has had low mood and she is attending counselling services.”

As well as the seven year prison sentence, Maughan was ordered to sign the sex offender register for life, was given a ten year restraining order banning him from contacting the victim and was barred from working with children or vulnerable adults.

The court heard he has no previous convictions and the judge was given references as to Maughan’s “good qualities”.

Tom Moran, defending, said: “While he must have become aware of her state of intoxication, he was not responsible for plying her with alcohol and he didn’t engineer them being left alone.

“The larger group of people gradually peeled off during the night, leaving just him and the victim.

“On the verdict of the jury, he then took the opportunity to commit a very serious offence.”

Mr Moran said the rape may not have lasted as long as the victim believed it had

Paul O’Brien from Darlington has been sentenced to nine years imprisonment for a rape and attack described by a judge as “beyond appalling.”

O’Brien is well known to us at HOPE not hate as he is a longstanding activist in the nazi music scene, and a regular attendee at gigs organised by the Blood & Honour music network.

O’Brien said he would return to kill the tearful victim – even if he were to go to prison.

The 47-year-old, of Oakland Oval, Darlington, admitted offences of rape, sexual assault and assault by penetration in relation to the incident in October last year.

Recorder David Dixon, sitting at Teeside Crown Court, said O’Brien will also become a registered sex offender for life.

Bearded O’Brien, who sat stoney faced in the dock throughout the sentencing hearing, smashed the woman’s phone and demanded sex, before carrying out what was described as a sustained attack.

The full details of O’Brien’s case can be read here.

Rather similar to the case of Ryan Fleming, another nazi sex attacker, O’Brien’s nazi friends are not making any comment condemning their comrade’s behaviour. O’Brien was the Blood & Honour link person in Darlington and his court case was known to all of his colleagues.

On his Facebook accounts it is apparent that most have unfriended O’Brien, leaving only a small group of Darlington casuals on his friends’ list.

A ‘horrific’ South Yorkshire paedophile who raped two vulnerable young children after buying them sweets has been jailed for 20 years.

James Andrew Swindlehurst, 43, of Rockingham Street, Honeywell, Barnsley was sentenced at Leeds Crown Court after being found guilty of 13 non-recent counts of rape and indecent assault of a child.

Swindlehurst denied the offences against two victims that spanned a five-year period during the 1990s and 2000s.

He was found guilty by a jury following a trial at Sheffield Crown Court in October.

Detective Constable Elinor Duke, leading the investigation, said: “This man took advantage of the fact that the children were vulnerable.

“He gained their trust by building a friendship with them and making them feel ‘needed’.

“He would buy them sweets and take them out before carrying out a prolonged period of sexual abuse, telling them that there was no point telling anyone as nobody would believe them.”

The victims made a disclosure to police in April 2014 and Swindlehurst was arrested and a full investigation was carried out.

DC Duke added: “The bravery that the victims have shown in coming forward is exceptional.

“They did it with the motivation to prevent Swindlehurst hurting any other children.

“It is testament to the courage of the victims that he is now facing 20 years behind bars and I hope today’s sentencing sends a message that we will take action and catch those responsible for such horrific acts.”

Shaun Jones, 19, of Haydn Road, West Derby, jailed for nine years for sex attacks on girl, 12,

Shaun Jones, 19, of Haydn Road, West Derby, jailed for nine years for sex attacks on girl, 12,

A Merseyside army cadet sergeant who groomed, exploited and raped a vulnerable 12-year-old schoolgirl was today jailed for nine years.

Predator Shaun Jones manipulated and humiliated his child victim as he carried out a string of vile sex attacks when he was aged 17.

Jones, of Haydn Road, West Derby, was today locked up on his 19th birthday after admitting a raft of 20 sex offence charges.

Liverpool Crown Court heard how Jones’s victim became “infatuated” and “obsessed” after he put her “under his spell”.

Judge David Aubrey, QC, said: “You took away her innocence, you took away her childhood, you took away her virginity.

“You sexually assaulted her in a variety of different ways over a period of time.

“I am quite satisfied that you were manipulating her and were doing so for your own sexual gratification.”

The court heard how Jones made the girl perform sex acts upon him, raped her, and indecently attacked the youngster in public.

He also demanded the girl send x-rated images and video of herself, and sent explicit ones in return.

The youngster told police that Jones had made her “fall in love” with him, even though she “didn’t want to be”.

She told officers: “I knew it wasn’t right. I knew I shouldn’t be doing it but I became obsessed with him.”

The girl also said she blamed herself and believed what happened to her was her own fault.

But Judge Aubrey said: “She was wrong about that. It wasn’t her fault at all.

“It was yours, in consequence of your grooming, your exploitation.

“That observation by her illustrates the psychological harm and the scars you have left.

“She was the victim, you were the perpetrator.”

The court heard that the girl was undergoing counselling and had become withdrawn, often locking herself in her bedroom.

Judge Aubrey said she had suffered “everlasting and permanent” damage.

Robert Wyn Jones, defending, said Jones was remorseful and had tried to take his life while on remand in prison.

He said his client had “excelled” while in the cadets.

Mr Wyn Jones said: “He tells me there have been suicide attempts while at Altcourse, so to a degree he is a vulnerable young man.

“But I can’t press that too far because he initiated the relationship and persisted in it.

“He has asked me to apologise on his behalf.”

Jones was also indefinitely banned from associating with children and changing his name under the terms of a sexual harm prevention order.

Michael McQueenie (pictured) has been jailed for more than 11 years for raping the 14-year-old girl, who has learning difficulties and is partially blind

A rapist wearing a hi-vis jacket who attacked a 14-year old partially blind girl after he failed to find sex on Skype and WhatsApp has been jailed for more than 11 years.

Michael McQueenie, 28, from Blackburn, Lancashire, had been drinking for three hours after leaving work at a waste recycling plant and was ‘sexually frustrated’ after repeatedly trying and failing to arrange to have sex with women over the internet.

Eventually McQueenie, who was still dressed in his work high visibility jacket, targeted the teenager after he spotted her sitting on a wall near a primary school.

He lured her into bushes before ordering her to strip and raping her.

The victim was found when her father, who had gone out looking for her, spotted her and McQueenie emerging from the bushes.

McQueenie fled but was later arrested as the immediate run-up to the attack had been caught on CCTV.

A court heard he resumed his online trawl for sex just 15 minutes after the rape.

The court heard the girl has a ‘multitude of learning difficulties,’ and had no concept of stranger danger and had been ‘inherently trusting of people.’

Her teacher said: ‘Anybody could ask her to do anything and she would do it.’

The court heard McQueenie’s actions ‘destroyed’ the girl’s loving, devoted and protective family and had left a ‘permanent and deep scar in their lives’.

In a statement read out in court, her father said: ‘The attack has altered our lives forever and we are completely and utterly devastated.

‘I feel this has destroyed me and my family.’

McQueenie admitted rape and sexual assault at Burnley Crown Court and was locked up for 11 years and seven months.

He was also ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely and was issued with a Sexual Offences Prevention order, banning him from having unsupervised contact with any female under the age of 16 and from living in the same household as any female under 16.

Joseph Allman, prosecuting, told the court the incident occurred on June 5 last year, after the girl had a chance encounter with McQueenie.

An eyewitness had been looking out onto the park when he saw the teenager being lured into some bushes by a stranger and went out to intervene.

The man came across the girl’s father, who was already looking for her.

They both went into the nearby park and saw the teenager and McQueenie, but he fled when the girl’s father chased after him.

Initially the girl said the stranger had just touched her.

She later told police she had met a ‘naughty man’ who told her to kiss him and take her clothes off before she was made to perform a sex act on him.

Police later established several people had seen the victim sitting on a low wall with a stranger at 8.24pm, shortly before she was seen on the playing field.

The stranger on the wall was described as similar to the man the girl’s father had chased and eyewitnesses said he had been wearing a hi vis jacket and had been drinking beer.

CCTV captured McQueenie going in to a local shop to buy beer in his hi viz jacket.

McQueenie was arrested on June 11 but claimed that after leaving work he had gone home, had a lot to drink and had not gone out again.

Mr Allman said: ‘Significantly, he adamantly denied he was wearing a yellow hi-vis jacket that day and maintained he had never been issued with that kind of jacket.’

He was re-interviewed when officers received statements from several people who had seen McQueenie sat on the wall.

He maintained he wasn’t the attacker but was later picked out by a witness during an identification parade.

He maintained he wasn’t the attacker but was later picked out by a witness during an identification parade.

Police then spoke to his workmates, supervisor and project co-ordinator.

Mr Allman told the court: ‘They readily established he did have a yellow hi vis jacket and in fact was issued with it that day.

‘They also established his jacket had disappeared by the following morning by the time he arrived at work. It has never been found.’

‘The defendant insisted it wasn’t him and ultimately tried to point the finger in the direction of what he described as “Asian gangs” hanging around in the area.’

McQueenie’s mobile phone and the laptop he shared with his mother were seized.

When officers analysed the phone and computer, they found he had made extensive use of two messaging functions, Skype and WhatsApp.

Mr Allman said: ‘In the early hours of the morning of the day the victim was raped, he sent really vast amounts of sexually themed messages to a wide range of women who were apparently strangers, or at most online acquaintances.

‘He had at least 10 specific sexual conversations, trying to meet for sex or have a webcam session and all of these exchanges ended in frustration.

‘About 15 minutes after the girl was raped, he resumed contact and carried on contacting numerous women to make small talk, but also to talk about sex.’

McQueenie has 37 previous offences on his record dating back to 2004.

At the time of the rape he was subject to a domestic violence suspended prison sentence for assaulting his partner as she held a baby.

The court heard the probation service found him to have a ‘poor attitude towards women.’

In mitigation defence counsel Kenneth Hind said : ‘The only major mitigation is that he has pleaded guilty.

‘He is facing up to the reality of the offences themselves.

‘This was an opportunist offence. It was committed within, what must be fair to say, a small window of opportunity.

‘It’s a terrible offence in itself, but it’s a one-off situation.

‘There’s no history or anything that would indicate that it’s likely to occur again, significantly.

‘There’s certainly a lack of maturity on his part, certainly in dealing with women.

‘There’s no doubt that there will follow a very substantial prison sentence and of course he knows that that will be the outcome.’

Passing sentence Judge Jacqueline Beech told McQueenie: ‘You lack remorse and any insight into the consequences of your offending on others.

‘It would have been immediately obvious to you that she was very vulnerable and that’s no doubt why you led her into the park and did what you did to her.

‘It’s clear at the time you were sexually frustrated as you had been seeking instant gratification over social media. ‘

‘Your offending has destroyed everything the victim’s family had been working for.

‘You should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. This is a long sentence and rightly so.’

Michael McQueenie admitted the crimes in November

Michael McQueenie admitted the crimes in November

A man has been jailed for the rape and sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl with learning difficulties.

Michael McQueenie, from Highbury Place in Blackburn, was sentenced at Burnley Crown Court to nearly 12 years after pleading guilty in November.

Lancashire Police said the 28-year-old assaulted the teenager on 5 June last year after he “lured the girl” into a wooded area.

Det Ch Insp Dean Holden described it as “a callous attack”.

“Her ordeal only came to an end when her dad came to find her and McQueenie ran off for fear of being caught,” he added.

He said the victim’s family were grateful to witnesses who helped identify him.

McQueenie was placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and will be subject to a lifelong Sexual Offences Prevention Order.

Merfyn Jones has been convicted of 13 counts of rape and been placed on the sex offenders’ register for life

Defendant Merfyn Jones, of Shotton, was jailed for 17 years for a series of historic sex offences against children

Defendant Merfyn Jones, of Shotton, was jailed for 17 years for a series of historic sex offences against children

The perverted past of a man — branded a sexual predator — caught up with him when he was jailed for 17 years for a campaign of sexual offences.

Merfyn Jones, 53, of Rowden Street in Shotton, was placed on the sex offender’s register for life.

Jones had denied 13 offences of attempted rape, attempted rape and indecent assault against four complainants, when they were children, dating back to the 1990s.

But he was unanimously convicted by a jury at Mold Crown Court in December.

Judge Rhys Rowlands said that Jones continued to deny the offences and had shown no remorse at all.

“You have no comprehension of the way in which you were meant to behave as a grown man towards young children, or the harm you have caused the victims,” the judge told him.

Jones, from Fllintshire, was a man of no convictions and had to be sentenced for his behaviour 20 years ago when he was in his 30s, he said.

Although there had been a significant delay, the other side of that was that he had managed to live a normal life for many years while the victims had to live with what he had done to them.

“You took advantage of four young girls and you did so repeatedly,” Judge Rowlands told him.

Two of the victims had been raped.

“Totally understandably, your behaviour had an appalling and profound effect,” the judge said.

“They continue to suffer to this day while you could not care less about the harm you have caused.

The only mitigation was that the offending ended in the 1990s and he had not been in any trouble since.

Judge Rowlands said that the victims were women now in their 20s and 30s but that Jones had taken away their childhoods — and thought he had got away with it.

“Now, I am afraid, you have to answer for your depraved behaviour as a younger man,” he said.

At the earlier hearing the judge said that on the verdicts of the jury, he fell to be sentenced as a sexual predator who had got away with for many years.

Jones was convicted of six charges of rape, one charge of attempted rape and six charges of indecent assault.

Prosecuting barrister John Philpotts said that victim impact statements showed the offences had not been reported at the time because the victims, as children, did not think they would be believed.

Some of them spoke of being unable to sleep, having nightmares, and still feeling the pain of what he had done.

One said that she felt angry and emotional and found it difficult to trust people.

Another told how her confidence and self-esteem had been affected and she suffered panic attacks.

Mr Philpotts described it as a sustained campaign of sexual offences with multiple victims which had caused severe psychological harm.

Paul Smith, defending, argued that the description of a campaign was not appropriate.

He said Jones appreciated that he was to receive a very significant sentence but he asked to judge to keep totality in mind.

The Daily Post

A MAN has admitted raping a teenage girl on playing fields near a school.

At Preston Crown Court yesterday, Michael McQueenie, of Highbury Place, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to rape and sexual assault.

He had been due to stand trial but accepted the charges against him.

Police said they hope the plea will allow the victim, who was 14 at the time of the attack, to start to rebuild her life.

The incident happened when McQueenie, who was wearing a fluorescent yellow jacket, lured the girl into a wooded area near St James’ Primary School, in Oozebooth Terrace, on June 5.

He asked her remove her clothing and then subjected her to a serious sexual assault.

McQueenie, 28, was disturbed and ran off when the girl’s concerned father came looking for her.

Detectives launched a major inquiry and a dedicated team of officers carried out door-to-door inquiries in the area.

The youngster is being supported by specially-trained officers.

Det Chief Insp Dean Holden, from Lancashire Constabulary, said the girl was terrified by her ordeal.

He said: “I welcome the result, given the terrible ordeal that this vulnerable young girl suffered.

“I hope that McQueenie’s admission of guilt and his subsequent sentencing next year will bring some closure to the victim and her family so that they can start to get on with rebuilding their lives.”

Cllr Hussain Akhtar, who represents the Shear Brow ward, said: “Our community does not accept things like this.

“What he did is very bad and sad. Parents in the area have discussed with their children about strangers and they are now keeping an eye out.

“I hope this girl can put behind her what happened and that she can get on with her life. There should be a very strong punishment for people like McQueenie.”

McQueenie will be sentenced at Burnley Crown Court on Monday, January 26.

A teenage sex-abuse victim endured years of “inner torture” after she was persuaded to drop her allegations against her attacker, a Court heard.

Self-confessed child molester Michael Coates got sympathy for himself by falsely claiming that he too had been a victim of sexual abuse and the girl was pressured into not proceeding with her allegations against him.

It was only three years later when Coates was finally charged with a series of sex offences, including two attempted rapes, that he admitted his own sex-abuse story was a pack of lies.

Today the 23-year-old Bradford man was beginning a six-year jail sentence for the repeated abuse which he accepted had developed from “experimenting” as a ten-year-old boy into a habit.

Coates, now of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to a total of eight charges of indecent assault and two of attempted rape in relation to the first girl and a further four offences of indecent assault in relation to a second.

During yesterday’s hearing at Bradford Crown Court Coates’ barrister Jonathan Rose handed Judge Roger Scott a copy of a suicide note his client had written.

In it he described himself as a child molester and offered his apologies to the two girls for what he had done.

Jailing Coates, Judge Scott told him that he regarded him as a danger to children and highlighted the fact he had told a series of dramatic lies for his own purposes.

“That poor girl must have had a very, very long period of inner torture…she attempted to kill herself as I understand it,” he said.

He said it was a further aggravating feature of the case that Coates had used bribery through sweets, money and cigarettes in exchange for sexual favours.

In addition to the jail sentence, Coates will also have to register with the police as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Prosecutor John Hitchen told the court that the first girl had suffered flashbacks and nightmares after deciding to drop the proceedings in 1998, but she eventually challenged Coates about what he had done in the autumn of last year.

Coates was arrested in October and made admissions in relation to the allegations made by the two girls.

Mr Rose conceded that Coates’ offending had turned into a habit and he was unable to stop himself until he reached the age of 19 in 1997.

He pointed out that since then Coates had not committed any further offences of a sexual nature.

“This is a very young man about to start a sentence for offences against children and through the duration of that sentence he will have no one….it’s going to be a very lonely and a very difficult time,” said Mr Rose.
