Man convicted for rape of a child 

A man has been found guilty of rape and sexual assault of a child in Slough.

Stephen Deville, 37, of Uxbridge was convicted of three counts of rape of a child under 13 and two counts of sexual assault of a child under 13 on Friday (8/12)  following a five day trial in Reading Crown Court.

He was charged on 6 September with the offences which took place between March and April 2015 in Slough and involved one female victim.

Detective Constable Alethea Cox of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit based in Windsor said: “It has been an incredibly difficult and troubling time for both the victim of this horrific crime, and her family.

 “Young witness protocol luckily meant the case was dealt with expeditiously and it has been a massive relief to finally have obtained some justice for them.”

Deville has been remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced at Reading Crown Court on 19 January.
