Child rapist jailed for abusing two young girls

A sexual predator that raped and abused two young girls during horrendous sexual attacks which took place over eight years has been sentenced to a total of 14 years imprisonment

Benjamin Leigh Stuart, 25 of Basildon appeared at Basildon Crown Court where he admitted:

  • Two counts of rape against two children aged under 13

  • Two counts of sexual assault on two children aged under 13

  • One count of sexual assault of a child

The court was told that the two female victims were toddlers when the abuse began.

Benjamin Stuart systematically abused both of the girls over an eight year period.

The callous sexual predator abused the girls for his own sexual gratification during twisted and perverted acts of depravity that shocked the courtroom and police officers.

The girls finally spoke out when they reached eight and twelve years old.

Benjamin Stuart was arrested. The court heard that during police interviews, Stuart had an insensitive and cruel disregard for his victims. 

The judge sentenced Stuart to a total of 14 years imprisonment 

She told him that he must comply with sexual harm prevention order for an indefinite period, and upon his release, he must not have any contact or communication with any female child aged under 16-years-old 

Benjamin Stuart has shown absolutely no remorse for his actions
