Dying paedophile sentenced to 15 years
A child abuser with cancer will die in jail after he was sentenced to 15 years in prison for a catalogue of offences.
Great Hollands man Terence Morgan was sentenced for 13 counts of sexual abuse against two children which took place over a number of years up until May 2011 and included raping a girl under 13 years old.
Judge Bruce McIntyre was invited to reduce the 66-year-old’s sentence on the grounds that he is suffering from cancer, but he ignored the plea, although he did express regret that Morgan may only have weeks to live.
Sentencing at Reading Crown Court on Friday, December 23, Judge McIntyre said: “It seems to me that I ought to sentence on the basis that you are not ill.
Your behaviour in committing these offences points at strange interests on your part in having sexual relationships with young girls. You betrayed trust to satisfy your sexual appetite.”
