Rapist fiend gets 27 years
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.
