‘Extremely dangerous’ sexual offender jailed

An ‘extremely dangerous’ sexual offender has been caged after waging an eight-year reign of terror over two children.

Alala Kesahit has been jailed for 20 years following a police investigation into the offences across Cambridgeshire and Oxfordshire.

For nearly a decade, evil Kesahit regularly abused and assaulted two children under the age of 16.

He was also physically abusive to a woman, assaulting her and causing bruising to her face and a cut lip in 2017.

The 31-year-old pleaded guilty to 14 separate offences on December 21, 2022 and admitted to another offence on January 13, 2023, in two hearings at Oxford Crown Court.

He pleaded guilty to five counts of rape of a child, eight counts of sexual assault by penetration, one count of sexual assault by touching, and one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

His guilty pleas were accepted by the Crown Prosecution Service. A remaining seven not guilty pleas will lie on file.

Kesahit, from Oxford, was jailed for 20 years with a further four years on licence – a total sentence of 24 years at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday (April 27).

He must also sign the sex offenders’ register for life and was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and restraining order for life.
