‘Monster’ caged for 12 years after subjecting girl to eight years of horrific abuse

A man has been jailed after forcing a woman to live through years of sexual abuse as a child.

Kenneth Parker, aged 62, of Sovereign Hall Caravan Park, Mossley has today (Thursday) been sentenced at Minshull Street Crown Court to 12 years in prison.

He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of indecently assaulting a child as well as being found guilty of two counts of committing indecency with a child and a further two counts of indecently assaulting a child.

During the 1980s – when the woman was a young girl – Parker regularly subjected her to horrific sexual abuse twice, sometimes, three times a week, every week for eight years.

The abuse carried on right through to her teenage years but Parker managed to get away with his depraved secret life.
