Anthony Vowles - Bridlington

A pervert who has admitted raping a boy has been warned by a judge his is facing a substantial prison sentence.

Anthony Vowles, 31, of Bridlington, is already serving nine years for sexually assaulting a boy and has now admitted being responsible for eight sexual offences against a second boy in Bridlington.

Vowels who used to live in Bridlington, appeared at Hull Crown Court on Wednesday March 4 and pleaded guilty to two offences of rape, one charge of inciting a child into sexual activity and six charges of sexually assaulting a child between July and December 2013.

Crown barrister John Thackray said the Crown were not surprised by the pleas, but were not in a position to open details of the case for sentence. He said Vowles was presently serving nine years for similar offences against a different boy, but those offences had not included rape.

Defence barrister David Cammidge said although he had not pleaded guilty immediately he had admitted the offences in time to gain maximum discount on his sentence. He said Vowles accepted he could not be sentenced straight away.

Judge Jeremy Richardson, QC, order Vowles to stand as he told him: “You have today pleaded guilty to very serious charges. As the circumstances appear at the moment, it will be a custodial sentence. Inevitably it will be a sentence of some substance. I need further information about you. I need to determine the issue of the danger you pose to the public and young persons. You have been sensible to plead guilty at this stage. That has saved a lot of anguish all round.”

He adjourned sentence until April 17.

Man jailed for nine years after admitting sexual offences against 12 yrd old boy

A man from Bridlington has been jailed after admitting to a number of sexual offences against a boy.

Anthony Ronald Vowles, aged 31, of Midway Avenue, Bridlington, was sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment at York Crown Court on Tuesday 27 May 2014, after pleading guilty to eight counts of sexual activity with a boy under the age of 13 and four counts of inciting sexual activity with a child.

All the offences were committed against the same boy, who was 12 at the time, between July 2013 and January 2014 in the Filey area.

Vowles was arrested in Bridlington in January 2014 after the victim told his parents about his ordeal.

Detective Constable Nigel Pepper, said:“Anthony Vowles preyed on an extremely vulnerable young boy and used him for his own sexual gratification on a number of occasions and may have continued doing so if the victim had not found the courage to come forward.”
