Teenager jailed for five years for raping a 12-year-old girl
Paul Antony Gorry, 19, was sentenced at Chester Crown Court after earlier pleading guilty to rape.
Meirion Lewis-Jones, prosecuting, told Judge Elgan Edwards the rape happened in the early part of last year at the victim’s home in Crewe.
The girl was watching television when the defendant called round and she allowed him in despite the fact they had earlier had an argument.
Mr Lewis-Jones said once Gorry was in the house they began to argue again.
He became more aggravated before he forced her to the floor, pulled her clothing down and started to rape her.
Mr Lewis-Jones added: ‘She was crying and trying to cover her eyes.
He was hurting her and she felt horrible and was extremely distressed. She was 12 at the time.
Gorry was disturbed by the phone ringing and he left the house.
The next day he warned his victim if she told on him he would do it again, but she eventually told her mother of her ordeal and it was reported to the police.
Last October Gorry confessed his crime to a social worker at a young offenders’ institute, where he is serving a three-year sentence for attempted robbery.
Defending, Ian Unsworth said Gorry was brain damaged at birth and had had a terrible upbringing.
He added: ‘He did not do this for fun. He acknowledged that this was wicked.
Through me, he would like to say sorry. For her, sorry isn’t good enough, and he knows that.’
Sentencing, Judge Edwards said: ‘This is very serious and custody is quite inevitable.’
Gorry will be placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register on his release.
