Kettering man who raped young girl sentenced to eight years in jail


A 49-year-old Northamptonshire man has been jailed for eight years after he was found guilty of raping a young girl.

Paul Viggars, of Vale Street, Kettering, was convicted by a jury of three counts of raping a girl who was under the age of 13.

Her Honour Judge Adrienne Lucking QC said Viggars is likely to serve half his prison sentence in custody before being released on licence.

He will be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life and will be banned from having any unsupervised contact with girls under the age of 16 years old.
