10-years for Torbay Child Sex Attacker
A child sex attacker who police believe is linked to a paedophile ring in a tourist resort which had 139 underage victims is tonight starting a ten year sentence in a young offenders institution for sex offences against young girls.
As Jake Ormerod, 20, begins his sentence for admitting offences described as "not far short of rape'' against eight girls as young as 13, it can be revealed that Devon and Cornwall Police have interviewed 139 girls aged as young as 11 who say they were abused by the group in Torquay.
Some were picked up from the gates of their schools in the area or from the streets and plied with alcohol and cannabis before he had sex with them.
The majority were "vulnerable'' girls with a propensity to run away from home.
Ormerod will be released on licence after serving half his sentence.
