Sadistic Wirral paedophile jailed for 19 years after vile sexual abuse of two young girls

A sadistic paedophile who repeatedly raped a young girl and tried to rent her to his friends for sex was today jailed for 19 years.

68-year-old Glyn Thomas, who also sexually abused a second girl, was told by a judge that it would be up to the Parole Board when he is considered safe to be released.

During his trial at Liverpool Crown Court a jury heard that Thomas, of Bromsgrove Road, Greasby, battered the rape victim if she refused his sick demands and also inflicted pain on her for his twisted pleasure.

He molested the second victim pretending he was checking her breasts for cancer.

Jailing him Judge Alan Conrad, QC, said that while his abuse of the second girl was bad enough, the abuse of the other child was far worse.

“Your conduct as far as she was concerned was truly horrifying.

“You used your forceful and domineering personality to get what you wanted.”

Judge Conrad said that he also used items to inflict pain on her “for your perverted gratification.”

“You even contemplated renting her out for sexual activity with your friends – a suggestion which proved to be the last straw for her. Not surprisingly she has been seriously damaged by what you did to her.”

Both victims, now adult women, did not know the other had been abused when they finally told police about their horrific experiences in late 2015.

The judge said both victims had shown great courage in coming forward and pointed out that Thomas, who showed no emotion in the dock, had shown no compassion to either of them.

“There is no regret or remorse for what you have done. Indeed you sought to present yourself as a victim,” added Judge Conrad.

Thomas had been convicted after a trial of 24 offences against the first victim involving 11 of rape, six of of indecent assault, five of sexual assault and two of causing a child to engage in sexual activity.

He was also convicted of two offences of indecent assault and one of sexual assault involving the second woman.

During his trial – after which he was convicted by a majority of ten to two following seven hours of deliberations – David Potter, prosecuting, told the jury the first woman brought the abuse to an end because Thomas “was trying to pass her onto his friends to abuse sexually.”

She approached police in November 2015 and said she was “petrified” of Thomas and had been manipulated into performing sex acts.

Mr Potter said whe she finally said “no” the woman was “battered” by the defendant.

“He punched her to the back of the head and she went to the floor. She soon gave up resisting.”

The court heard the second victim came forward in December 2015 and said she too had been sexually molested by him.

Thomas told the jurors the women were “compulsive liars.”

He denied ever being alone with either of the girls.

In an impact statement the rape victim told how her education had suffered as she had been unable to concentrate on her studies because of what had been happening to her but was trying to better herself.

She has been left suffering from anxiety and said, “I never go out on my own, I’m too scared in case I see him. If I did I would not stop running.”

The judge imposed an additional 12-month licence on Thomas, ordered him to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life and imposed an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

Thomas, who did not qualify for legal aid, had to pay for his own defence and today the judge ordered him to pay £2,000 towards the prosecution costs within 14 days.
