Telford Man Jailed For Raping Girl
A 51-year-old Shropshire man has been jailed for eight years for raping a girl under 13 back in the 1990s.
Richard Neil Roberts, from Telford, was 32 when the offence took place in 1995 and was living in the Donnington area.
Detective Inspector Mark Jones, who led the investigation, said: “I am satisfied with the sentence handed down by Judge Barrie and I feel it properly reflects the seriousness of the offence.
“Obtaining this conviction demonstrates how seriously all allegations of this nature are taken by police. The passage of time will not detract from our determination to uncover evidence and prosecute offenders. I offer my reassurance to victims and witnesses who are considering coming forward. We will offer complete support and the utmost patience, care and respect when dealing with reports of this nature.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the courage of the victim in this case. The woman, who is now an adult, was a child when this dreadful offence occurred in the safety of her own home. It is only recently that she has found the courage to report this matter.
“Finally, I am keen to hear from anyone who may recognise Roberts and who may have any further details or information in relation to this or other incidents.”
