Birmingham man and nephew jailed for child sex offences

A prisoner who police said confessed further crimes to a cell mate has been jailed alongside his uncle for child sexual abuse.

Adam Judd, 26, who was jailed for sexual offences in 2014, also detailed the further crimes in a letter, which led to an investigation, officers said.

He was sentenced to five years and nine months for nine counts of rape and two sexual assaults.

Wayne Judd was jailed for 11 and half years at Birmingham Crown Court.

The 30-year-old, of Marston Road, Weoley Castle, had pleaded guilty to four counts of rape.

Adam Judd was given a reduced term due to the seven-year sentence he was handed in 2014, said West Midlands Police.

Adam Judd was due for release for previous sexual offences when he confessed further crimes to a cell mate.

He said he was tired of holding it back and wrote a letter in 2017 detailing offences he had committed against his victims between 2011 – 2014.

The letter identified two further victims who had not been part of the original investigation, which led to detectives visiting them to give them the opportunity to report their experiences.

This led to detectives from the police’s Public Protection Unit interviewing Adam Judd and his uncle, Wayne Judd, although the latter denied any wrong-doing.

Statements were taken from two women, who were both under the age of 14 at the time of their abuse, and enough evidence was built up to charge the pair.
