Pervert found guilty of ‘despicable’ rapes against girls under 16

Pervert Paul James has been convicted of a string of child rapes following a trial.

The 47-year-old – known as Cristy – had denied six counts of rape against girls under the age of 16 between 1999 and 2007.

But he was convicted following a trial at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

James, of Marchwood Court in Penkhull, was also found guilty of five other counts of sexual assault against his three victims.

He will now be sentenced at a later date.
