A ‘TRULY vile’ child rapist from Hilling­don has been sen­tenced to 20 years be­hind bars for rap­ing two vic­tims un­der the age of 13.

Jamie Ul­rich, 29, was first ar­rested as part of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into al­le­ga­tions he pos­sessed in­de­cent im­ages of chil­dren.

His home was raided by of­fi­cers from the Child Abuse and Sex­ual Of­fences Com­mand (CASO) and while re­view­ing his col­lec­tion they un­cov­ered im­ages of Ul­rich rap­ing a girl be­low the age of 13.

He was ar­rested on June 12 and charged the fol­low­ing day, but a fur- ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion un­veiled a se­cond rape on a girl be­low the age of 13 and he was fur­ther charged.

All the of­fences oc­curred be­tween Oc­to­ber 2016 and June 2017 in the Hilling­don area. Ul­rich had recorded him­self car­ry­ing out the “hideous” crimes on both vic­tims.

He pleaded guilty to seven counts of rape, one count of pen­e­tra­tion and two counts of in­cit­ing a girl un­der 13 to en­gage in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity and nine counts of mak­ing or dis­tribut­ing an in­de­cent pho­to­graph of a child at Isle­worth Crown Court on Septem­ber 15.

The judge sen­tenced him on Tues­day to two con­sec­u­tive jail terms of ten years for each of the girls he raped, and or­dered he must serve two thirds of his sen­tence be­fore he can even be con­sid­ered for re­lease.

Once re­leased he will face eight years ex­tended li­cence and be un­der a Sex­ual Harm Pre­ven­tion Or­der re­strict­ing his ac­cess to those un­der16 and elec­tronic me­dia de­vices for life.

The judge or­dered Ul­rich not be con­sid­ered for re­lease un­til two thirds of his sen­tence is served

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Paul Jack­son, of CASO, said: “Bring­ing this man be­fore the court re­quired great courage by the vic­tims and their fam­i­lies.

“I would like to thank them per­son­ally for sup­port­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and al­low­ing us to en­sure Ul­rich was made to face jus­tice.

“With­out their co­op­er­a­tion we may never have un­cov­ered the full scale of his hor­rific abuse.

“Th­ese were truly hideous crimes on very young chil­dren.

“That Ul­rich recorded the at­tacks is truly vile and I am glad this man has been brought to ac­count for his ter­ri­ble ac­tions.

“Bring­ing this man to jus­tice will pro­tect young chil­dren from his evil de­signs.”
