65 Year Old Locked Up For Rape And Abuse Of Young Girl

3rd December 2018
News, Mansfield

A 65-year-old man has been jailed for 13 years after admitting raping and sexually assaulting a seven-year-old girl.

David Robinson, of Southwell Road East, Rainworth, Mansfield, was arrested at his home on 13 November 2017 after concerns were raised to police.

Robinson denied the offences in police interview but pleaded guilty at Nottingham Crown Court to rape of a child under 13, two offences of sexual assault of a child under 13, and two offences of causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity.

On Friday 30 November he was sentenced to a total of 13 years in prison and made the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for life.

 

Detective Constable Mark Kimberley, who led the investigation, said: "Robinson abused the trust placed in him and carried out horrifying abuse of a young girl who didn't fully understand what was happening.

"We take sexual offences very seriously and would urged anyone affected by abuse to call us on 101. We treat survivors of abuse with sensitivity and compassion and are committed to bringing offenders to justice."
