Sick abuser with nappy fetish jailed for 17 years for raping child

A VILE abuser with a fetish for wearing nappies has been jailed for 17 years for raping a child.

Sion Richard Griffiths, 20, from Anglesey would dress up as a baby, put a dummy in his mouth and then sexually abuse the child, prosecutor Gemma Gordon told Caernarfon Crown Court.

The abuse was reported to police and when arrested a mobile phone was examined and photographs of Griffiths, wearing a nappy were found.

He admitted to police he had a fetish for wearing such items.

Griffiths, of Glas y Dorlan, Nebo, near Amlwch had denied rape and engaging in sexual activity with the minor but was found guilty following a trial last month.

His co-accused Ffion Glynwen Jones, 27, of Maes Salem, Amlwch was jailed for 10 years after she was found guilty of engaging in sexual activity.

Members of her family were in court and she continued to have their support.

Ms Gordon said the abuse came to light in May this year when the child told a friend what Griffiths had been doing.

Text messages from Jones were found threatening to tell police what Griffiths was doing.

In reply Griffiths said: “Fine, ruin me,” the court was told.

Jailing the pair, Judge Huw Rees said their “warped behaviour” amounted to the serious sexual abuse of a child.

Judge Huw Rees added it was too soon to make a proper assessment of the impact of the offences on the child.

Both Griffiths and Jones were made subject of indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Orders and their details will be held on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Jones was close to tears as the judge announced the sentences but Griffiths showed no emotion
