Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN -

A DJ who raped a 16-yearold girl af­ter she got drunk at a party he threw has been jailed for 17 years.

For­mer parish coun­cil chair­man Mark McCormick, 49, also groomed and abused boys he em­ployed as road­ies.

He ad­mit­ted 14 of­fences, com­mit­ted be­tween 1997 and 2011, on the first day of his trial at Southamp­ton crown court in Septem­ber.

Sen­tenc­ing McCormick, of Bursle­don, Hants, Judge Ni­cholas Row­land said: “You con­trolled and ma­nip­u­lated your vic­tims.

“No doubt they were ex­cited by the idea of be­ing with some­one who was lead­ing a rather glam­orous life­style.”
