Sick pervert from Portsmouth jailed for 13 years

A child rapist has been jailed for 13 years after being convicted of offences relating to a young girl

Paul Deacon, 67, from Portsmouth was found guilty following a trial of a string of sexual offences against a young girl between the ages of eight and 15

Deacon denied one count of child rape, five counts of indecent assault against a child under 13, one count of gross indecency with a child under 14 and one count of inciting a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity.

Following a trial earlier this month at Portsmouth Crown Court, the jury found Deacon guilty on all the charges

He was sentenced at the same court yesterday (August 25), when he was jailed for 13 years. He will be on the sex offenders register for the rest of his life
