“Remorseless” paedophile who raped one boy & molested another jailed

A “remorseless” paedophile who sexually abused and raped one boy, and molested another, has been jailed for 15 years.

Jason Kinning, 44, was convicted by a jury of 13 sex offences against the victims.

He denied the charges claiming both young men were telling lies and nothing sexually untoward ever happened.

Sentencing him at Leicester Crown Court, Judge Robert Brown said: “The offences happened between 1999 and 2004.

“I’m told you’ve committed no offences since 2004 and have led a normal life since then.

“I’ve little doubt you’ve lived your life in the last 10 or so years untroubled by the abuse you inflicted upon those two boys.

“They haven’t.

“They’ve been tormented each day by the memory of what you did and the psychological damage you did to them.

“They will have to deal with that for many years to come.

“You’ve put them through the ordeal of a trial.

“They have been made to relive the abuse again and you’ve accused them of lying.

“By not pleading guilty you’ve denied yourself one real factor of mitigation.

“You’ve shown no remorse, you’ve shown no emotion at all throughout this trial.”

Gary Short, prosecuting, said one victim was subjected to a pattern of abuse on occasions he visited a house, where the defendant was also present, over a five year period.

It included a range of sexual activity and two isolated incidents of rape.

The second victim, aged 13, was befriended by the defendant and three sex offences were committed during the course of one evening, in a caravan.

Kinning, of Kinsdale Drive, Leicester, was found guilty on all 13 counts by majority 10-2 verdicts.

They were four counts of indecency with a child under 14, four of indecent assault with a boy under 16 and two counts of rape, regarding the first victim.

He was convicted of two indecent assaults and one count of indecency with a child, relating to the second boy.

Judge Brown also said: “Your wife who supports you through this and other members of your family will suffer because of your incarceration and they are also victims, in a different sense.”

Kinning was placed on a sexual harm prevention order for life, banning him from having unsupervised contact with children under 16.

He will also have to enrol on a sex offender register, so the police will always be aware of his current address, indefinitely.
