Nottinghamshire man jailed for 30 years after multiple rapes of teenage girl

A convicted paedophile who controlled and raped a schoolgirl multiple times, including on his wedding night, has been locked up for 30 years.

The court heard of the historic abuse a girl suffered at the hands of Jason Guzikowski, which started when she was just 13 years old and who preyed on her vulnerability. The first rape happened in 1997 and throughout the next two years, multiple rapes followed.

Contact stopped when the victim was 15, and both moved to different areas of the country.

But by 2012, Guzikowski was back in contact with the victim and he continued his abuse.

The trail of historic abuse was reported to Nottinghamshire Police in 2019, and today (Wednesday 28 April 2021), 51-year-old Guzikowski,  of Vale Road, Mansfield Woodhouse, was handed a 30-year sentence at Nottingham Crown Court after being found guilty of eight counts of rape.

Guzikowski had previously served a four-and-a-half year sentence for sexual offences committed against children and adults.
