A paedophile has been sentenced for carrying out a sustained campaign of rape and abuse against two young girls

At his trial on October 26th, 2017 at Stafford Crown Court, Roy Millington, 73 of Leek was found guilty of the following charges:

  • One count of rape of a child aged under 13

  • 3x counts of Causing a child to watch a sexual act

  • 2x counts of sexual assault of a child aged under 13 by penetration

  • 2x counts of sexual assault of a child aged under 13

The court was told that Millington had repeatedly abused the two female victims over a number of years

One girl was abused between the ages of five and 11 years, while the other suffered between the ages of five and seven

Because Millington refused to admit the abuse, it forced both victims to give evidence. However the jury found him guilty of eight serious sexual offences. whilst the other charges could not be proved beyomng reasonable doubt. 

The judge sentenced him to a total of 14 years and ordered to register as a sex offender for life
