‘Dangerous’ monster raped children and forced them to watch sexual acts

A monster who raped children and forced them to watch sexual acts has been jailed for 16 years.

Mark Jacobson, of Washington Parade, Bootle, was found guilty of 16 counts of serious child sex offences.

These include two counts of rape, two counts of attempted rape and multiple counts of sexual activity with a child, causing a child to watch a sexual act and engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

Yesterday, at Liverpool Crown Court, he was sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Jacobson was also given an indefinite sexual harm prevention order (SHPO) and was issued with a restraining order and sex offender notification requirement.
