Pervert sentenced to 21 years

A Keighley man has been jailed for 21 years for rape and indecent assault of a child.

Brian Willoughby, 51, of North Dean Road, Keighley has been found guilty of five offences including rape and several indecent assaults of one female victim.

The offences took place between 2000 and 2003 when the victim was between 11 and 14-years-old.

In 2005, the victim disclosed that she had been sexually abused as a child and then in 2014, she came forward to speak to the police and report the offences, as she felt ready to do so.

Willoughby was subsequently arrested and charged with multiple offences.

Yesterday (3 December) Willoughby was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court to 21 years in prison and has been given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for life.
