Man jailed for sexually abusing girl in Manchester

A man who raped and sexually abused a young girl when he was child has been jailed.

James Dominic King (06/05/1965) of Longden Road in Longsight was sentenced to six years and four months at Manchester Crown Court, Crown Square today (Wednesday 11 April 2018).

He pleaded guilty to one count of rape, sexual intercourse with a girl under 13, one indecent assault on a child and indecency.

The abuse began in the 70s when the victim was under the age of 10 and the offender was aged 11.

Over an eight year period King would regularly sexually assault the girl at an address in Withington.

Over the years this then escalated to him forcing himself on her and raping her systematically at an address in Didsbury.

The abuse eventually stopped when the victim was a teenager and King was an adult.

After confiding in her family, the woman bravely reported the non-recent abuse to police in April 2016.

Following a detailed investigation by officers King was arrested and charged before eventually admitting the offences at court.

The sentence handed to him reflected King’s age at the time of the offences.
