Sex menace is jailed

A BLACK Country lorry driver was jailed for a total of ten years by a court for a string of sex attacks.

Judge Frank Chaplain told 57-year-old Kenneth Jones it was clear he was ‘a danger to young women’. Jones, of Greenwood Road, Oxley, Wolverhampton, admitted rape, three charges of indecent assault and another of indecency with a child.

The Judge also ruled he should stay on the sex offenders’ register for life. He told Jones: ‘If I were to pass individual sentences in each case and added them up you would be in prison for a very long time indeed.’ Wolverhampton Crown Court was told Jones’s victims were four young girls and one of the sex attacks was committed while he was on bail.

Christopher Gorman, defending, said: ‘He knows exactly where he stands -he will be an old man when he gets out’.
