Child rapist jailed for more than 20 years

A paedophile from Barking has been jailed for more than 20 years for a ’protracted campaign’ of sex offences against children spanning just under a decade.

Rupert Deeble, 51, of Margaret Bondfield Avenue, Barking, was found guilty of:

– Two counts of raping a child under the age of 13

– Three counts of assault by penetration

– Four counts of sexual activity with a child

– Causing a child to watch a sexual act

The sexual predator was sentenced to 23 years’ imprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court

The judge also decided Deeble is to be classified as a dangerous offender.

The crimes were committed against three female victims aged between 12 and 15 years old when the offences took place between 2008 and 2017.
