Judge jails rapist for 12 years

A rapist has been jailed for 12 years at Truro Crown Court after he admitted sexually assaulting two girls.

Geoffrey Woolley, 45, from a china clay village near St Austell, admitted offences of rape, sexual activity with a child, indecent assault and taking indecent photographs.

Judge Geoffrey Rucker, describing Woolley’s offences as “grotesque”, ordered him to be registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
