County's most prolific rapist

Wiltshire's most prolific paedophile received six life sentences for more than 100 vile crimes against children as young as two.

Peter Daniels, aged 70, glared and shrugged from the dock of Salisbury Crown Court as he received the life-long jail term.

Judge Richard Parkes described the pervert as "an expert in grooming".

Daniels, previously of Eyres Drive in Alderbury but now of HMP Isle of Wight, was sentenced for 78 offences of child sexual abuse against 22 young victims aged between just two and 15-years-old, after admitting the charges in December.

The children were abused by the 70-year-old over a 10-year period.

Boy, 12, acted out video game fantasy

A Swindon boy of 12 who raped his six-year-old sister on numerous occasions – including Christmas Day – was sentenced in February to a 12-month referral order.

The court heard that the boy - who cannot be named because he is under-18 - raped his victim in the living room and bedroom of their family home while adults were in another room or asleep.

One incident began after the boy watched footage of a sexual act in a Grand Theft Auto video game with his victim then decided to recreate it with her while another younger sibling was still in the room.

Religious man raped his own girl's

A Jehovah's Witness who repeatedly molested his two daughters would have faced a lengthy jail sentence had he not been suffering with Alzheimer's Disease.

Judge Jason Taylor QC described Dennis Cottee's crimes as evil, saying the octogenarian's campaign of abuse had had a devastating and debilitating effect on the two women.

A rapist was been ordered back to prison after police found vile child sex abuse images on his computer.

He was sent back inside after detectives found 49 sickening images, including some showing children as young as five being molested.

Sentencing the 64-year-old to a further eight months imprisonment for three counts of making indecent images of children, Judge Peter Crabtree said: “Anyone who engages in downloading child pornography is involved in fuelling a business which results in those children being the subject of psychological and harm – sometimes over many, many years.”
