Child sex offender from Ramsgate jailed

A child sex offender from Ramsgate has been jailed for inflicting more than a decade of cruel and degrading treatment on his victim.

Jason Robson committed a catalogue of serious offences against the child between 2007 and 2018 including holding a knife to their throat, forcing their head into a toilet and pushing them down the stairs.

He also committed a number of sexual offences against the victim in addition to punching and kicking them on numerous occasions.

The crimes were reported to Kent Police in June 2020 and Robson, 47, of Grummock Avenue, was arrested shortly afterwards and later charged.

He denied all the allegations but was found guilty of child cruelty and five child sex offences following a trial at Canterbury Crown Court. On Tuesday 18 July 2023 he was sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment.
