The monster builder who plied girl with gin before sexually abusing her

A serial sex offender from Doncaster who repeatedly targeted a young girl has been branded a “monster” because of the “nightmare” ordeal he caused.

Peter Williams, 51, plied the girl with gin and exposed himself to her during his “shocking” and “disgraceful” behaviour.

The victim had “endured more than a child should” and the trauma would last all her life, Hull Crown Court heard.

Williams admitted three offences of assault by penetration while he was living in the Hull area between August 1, 2017 and November 11, 2019.

Megan Rhys, prosecuting, said that the girl texted her mother saying: “Can I tell you something really important?”

She later told her mother that Williams had intimately touched her after pulling down her trousers and underwear.

“He had done this more than once,” said Miss Rhys.

Williams had given her gin to drink, even though she was under age, and had also shown her his private parts.

The girl said in a statement that the incidents made her feel like she could not trust anyone.

She had been left confused, angry and upset.

“I get nervous and worry that something will happen,” she said.

“I did not deserve anything that he has done to me. The whole thing has made me a quieter person than I was.”

The girl’s mother said: “Having to watch my daughter talk about what happened was heartbreaking. The days following were like a nightmare.

“She thought it was her fault. She got thrust into an adult world through the acts of a monster.

“She became distant and quiet. At times, she would get angry at the littlest of things.

“There would be tears of upset because she would never say why she was crying.

“She has had to endure more than any child should. It will never go away.

“It’s something she has got to live with for the rest of her life.”

Williams had no previous convictions but had a caution for assault in 2007.

Williams, of Cusworth Road, Doncaster, was jailed for six years and was given a 10-year sexual harm prevention order. He must register as a sex offender for life.
