Paedophile father sentenced for abusing young girls 

A relentless paedophile father has been jailed after sexually abusing his two young daughters on a daily basis over a 14-year period

Former school caretaker George Wheeler, 70 of Birmingham appeared at Norwich crown Court where he admitted a string of ‘specimen charges’:

  • 15 counts of indecent assault 

  • 3 counts of attempted rape

Specimen charge’s were used in this case due to the sheer amount of abuse carried out by Wheeler. It was estimated that he carried out over 1000 sexual offences against the victims

The court was told that the two sisters were aged just four and 10 years old when the abuse began.

The attacks took place over a 14-year period in various locations in Birmingham and Great Yarmouth

The older sister was repeatedly abused for a full decade whilst the second girl was forced into hundreds of depraved sexual acts over four years

The court was told that at the age of just four, one girl told her mother she was being abused by her father. The mother flew into a rage and shouted at the child, and disciplined her by sending her to her room.

The mother then told her husband when he got home from work and continued to support him by colluding and keeping the abuse a secret.

However the mother escaped justice as shockingly no charges were brought against her

The judge sentenced Wheeler to a total of six years, of which he must serve half. He was told that he must register as a sex offender.

On release, Wheeler will be subject to various licence conditions which would expire in 2020 

Wheeler was considered as a highly dangerous sexual predator that sexually abused and mentally scarred his own biological daughters for a prolonged period of time.
