Joe Lloyd jailed for sexually abusing and raping boy

A paedophile who subjected a boy to at least 19 rapes has been sentenced to nine years

Joe Lloyd, 29, sexually assaulted the victim on several occasions.

He subjected the boy to sexual assaults, including rapes which gradually become more serious over time.

The offences came to light when they were reported to police in May 2017 and Lloyd was arrested soon after.

Specialist detectives from Essex Police’s adult sexual assault investigation team carried out an investigation into the offences and charged Lloyd with 24 separate offences.

He denied the charges but was convicted of 19 counts of rape and five counts of sexual assault at Basildon Crown Court last week.

Lloyd, of Ullswater Road, London, SE27 was sentenced to nine years and put on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life during a sentencing hearing at the same court today (Thursday, February 25).
