Pervert jailed for rapes


A pervert who humiliated a woman when subjecting her to brutal rapes has been jailed for eight years.

Lee Jenner had sex with the victim despite her begging him to stop, a jury at Maidstone Crown Court heard.

The 43-year-old father, formerly from Tunbridge Wells, now of Grimsby, Humberside, was convicted of three rape charges by a 10-2 majority.

Jenner, who denied all the allegations, was acquitted of another rape charge.

After his arrest, indecent images showing girls in school uniform were found on his computer. Some of them were in the highest category of seriousness.

He admitted making indecent images of children.

Recorder James Dawson was told the father-of-four did not work following a serious back injury while working as a school cleaner some years ago.

Jenner was a radio ham who had registered with a scheme to assist emergency services.

Recorder Dawson told him: “These offences of rape are extremely serious. They were almost certainly you trying to control her in some way and humiliate her. That you did.

“She lost confidence. You made her life a misery.”

He added: “You were a man of good character. I take that into account.”

Jenner was sentenced to nine months concurrent for the indecent images offences.

“These are real children in those photographs and they have to be protected,” said the judge.

A sexual harm prevention order was made and Jenner’s name will appear on the sex offenders’ register indefinitely.
