A STOURPORT man convicted of rape 17 years ago carried out two more sex attacks on a 12-year-old girl and a pregnant woman.
Nigel Knighton groped the woman on Hartlebury Common after offering her a lift home from a bingo hall.
He went into the girl’s bedroom while at a party, kissed her on the lips and asked if could fondle her chest, Worcester Crown Court heard.
In 1990 he was sentenced to five years in jail for raping a girl of eight at the Chain Wire club in Stourport, said Ian Speed, prosecuting.
Knighton, 35, of Stourport, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault.
He was given an indeterminate sentence for public protection and must serve a minimum of two years before being considered for release by the parole board.
Judge Richard Rundell said he was “a dangerous person” who posed a serious risk to children.
Knighton went to a house party in Bromsgrove on September 26 last year and was noticed going upstairs a number of times.
The girl later made a compaint to her father and when challenged the defendant denied any misbehaviour.
Next day he claimed he had mistaken the girl’s bedroom for the bathroom.
On December 4, Knighton dropped his mother off, before driving a woman he knew from his college days to the common, said Mr Speed.
She rejected his advances and informed him she was deeply in love with her partner and pregnant but he “leapt onto her” and grabbed her.
Nigel Hall, defending, said his offending had cost him his relationship and job. His family had disowned him.
Knighton blamed problems in his childhood and recognised that he needed therapy.
Mr Hall said he misread the signs from the woman and had saved the girl coming to court to give evidence by pleading guilty.
