Woodsetton man used computer to watch porn before sickening sex attack

A pervert from Woodsetton watched pornography on his computer before carrying out a sex attack on a young girl.

Twisted Graham Winchurch has been jailed for ten years after pleading guilty to rape and sexual assault against two schoolgirls.

At Wolverhampton Crown Court the 48-year-old pervert was told his actions had left both his victims badly affected.

Judge Robin Onions told Winchurch it was cynical offending for his own sexual purposes and the “sheer amount of the sexual offending” was an aggravating feature of the case.

Winchurch, of Parkes Hall Road, admitted two charges of rape against the one victim together with two sexual assaults.

He further admitted sexual assault on the second victim and also causing her to engage in sexual activity.

The judge further ruled he must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and made him the subject of an indefinite sexual offenders protection order.

The court was told Winchurch watched porn before carrying sex attacks on the one victim while he also had a pornographic image of himself on his mobile.

He also barred Winchurch – a man of previous good character – from ever working with children.

Phillip Brunt, for Winchurch, said it was accepted what his client had done to the two girls had damaged their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

But he added that by his admissions to the offences he had spared the girls the ordeal of having to give evidence against him to a jury.

Mr Brunt said: “He recognises his wrongdoing and he has shown considerable regret for what he has done.”
