Rapist fiend gets 27 years

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - The Everest -

A SADIS­TIC rapist who bru­tally tor­mented a string of women over decades has been jailed for at least 27 years.

The Cen­tral Coast man, who can’t be named for le­gal rea­sons, was found guilty by a jury of 21 of­fences against six women and one girl be­tween 1988 and 2014.

The court had pre­vi­ously heard that the man had forced his vic­tims to eat off the floor, en­cour­aged one child to at­tack her mother with a fork and as­saulted his preg­nant de facto with a piece of wood. In a sen­tenc­ing hear­ing last month, one vic­tim told the court “my life will never be the same”.

Dis­trict Court Judge Sarah Huggett yes­ter­day said the abuse was de­signed to “em­pha­sise a vic­tim’s pow­er­less­ness and worth­less­ness” and sen­tenced the 53-year-old to a max­i­mum of 36 years jail.
