Paedophile caged for 13 years

A PEADOPHILE has been jailed for 13 years after raping an 11-year-old girl.

Michael Bruggink, aged 27, of York Road, Southend was found guilty of raping a young girl under the age of 13, two sexual assaults on her, and inciting a child to commit seual activity. He had denied the charges.

However, he admitted possession of indecent images. He was sentenced to a total of 13 years imprisonment at Southend Crown Court on Monday, July 18, 2011.

He will be on the Sex Offenders Register and under a Sexual Offences Prevention Order for life.

Investigating officer Det Con Jayne Tolley said: ” These were some of the worst images we have seen and he then acted out his fantasy on a vulnerable young girl.

” He forced her to relive this trauma by making her give evidence against him in court. This sentence is nothing less than he deserves.”
