Face of the monster paedophile who devastated young girls’ lives
Vile sex offender Gary Neal is beginning a 16-year prison sentence after raping girls and abusing five victims over a period of 18 years in Grimsby and Cleethorpes.
At Grimsby Crown Court, Judge Ahmed Nadim said Neal, 54, was a danger to the public and added a further four years to the sentence which will be served on licence.
He also imposed an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order and Neal will be on the Sex Offender Register for life.
It followed a trial in which Neal denied 14 sex offences against girls.
Neal, married and living at Mill Lane, Kirton Lindsey, was found guilty of the offences against five girls.
Neal was convicted of:
Four counts of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 14,
Gross indecency with a child under the age of 14,
Two counts of rape of a female child under the age of 16,
Sexual assault of a girl under the age of 13,
Three counts of inciting a girl under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity,
Three counts of sexual assault of a girl under the age of 13.
