A MAN has been jailed for 12 years after being found guilty of eight sex offences, including rape.

Kemal Roma, 39, unemployed, of no fixed address, but from the Hastings area was charged with one count of rape and seven counts of sexual assault including two by penetration and five by touching between March 2012 and September 2014.

All the offences were committed in Hastings.

Roma was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court last Friday (March 13) to 12 years in prison.

He will be on the Sex Offenders Register for life and will be bound by a sexual offences prevention order for life.

Detective Constable Andrew Smith said “This was a difficult case to progress and it took the victims a great deal of courage to come forward and to stand up and be counted against a defendant who is considered to be a manipulative bully.

“A serial calculating sex offender has now been convicted and received appropriate punishment for his disgusting crimes against vulnerable victims.”
