17 years jail for former call centre worker who subjected a young boy to years of rape

A call centre worker who subjected a young boy to years of rape and sexual assaults has been jailed for 17 years.

Pervert Duane Griffiths abused the youngster over a five year period during the 2000s – but it was only in 2015 that the victim came forward.

Police have praised the courage of the victim in speaking up about his ordeal and helping to ensure the conviction.

Griffiths, aged 47, of High Street, Pontarddulais , had previous been found guilty of charges of raping a child under 13 sexual touching, and grooming following a trial at Swansea Crown Court when he appeared at the same court for sentencing.

Judge Keith Thomas sentenced him to 17 years in prison, and made him subject to a further six years extended licence on his release.
