Stoke-on-Trent pervert, 38, raped teenage girl after plying her with monkey dust

Pervert John Geary raped a teenage girl – after plying her with drugs and then watching a porn film with his victim.

The 38-year-old ‘pressured’ the victim – who cannot be named – to take monkey dust with him before having sex with her.

The defendant denied raping the youngster. But he was convicted after a jury found she was incapable of giving her consent due to the effect of the drug.

Now Geary, of no fixed address, has been jailed for nine years at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

Sentencing Geary, Judge Paul Glenn described the offence as ‘appalling’ and said it had a ‘massive’ effect on the victim.

He said: “You plied her with monkey dust, a psychoactive substance which is highly damaging and she had not taken the substance before.

“You pressured her into taking it. The effect on her was significant, as you no doubt realised it was going to be.

“She described how she did not know what she was doing and felt like she was in a different world. You had realised by that stage you could take advantage of her state.”

The court heard Geary and the victim then took more monkey dust and watched porn before telling her to take her clothes off.

Judge Glenn added: “You had sex with her. Afterwards you told her not to tell anyone, that it was your little secret and you would get into trouble.”

The court heard Geary has an ‘unattractive’ record of previous convictions. He is currently serving a four-year prison sentence for violent offences.
