Man sentenced to 16 years after sex crimes

A rapist who broke a woman’s jaw has been handed a prison sentence of 16 years.

Jud Green, 34, of no fixed address, pleaded not guilty to ten charges including rape and GBH, before he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court on Monday, June 12.

On the first day of his trial, the 34-year-old pleaded guilty to charges of non-fatal strangulation and criminal damage and was subsequently found guilty of a further seven charges after an eight-day trial.

The court heard a woman come forward in December 2022 to say she had been physically assaulted, sexually assaulted, and raped by Green.

Green was arrested and bailed while investigations took place, officials were told.

While still on bail, a second victim reported being physically assaulted by Green, leaving her with a broken jaw, the court was told.

He was arrested again and charged with numerous offences against both victims in the Lincoln area and remanded into custody.

Green admitted to or was found guilty of two counts of rape, ABH, sexual assault, witness intimidation, false imprisonment, GBH, criminal damage and intentional strangulation – nine charges in total.

He was sentenced to 16 years in prison when he appeared in Lincoln Crown Court on Thursday, August 10.

The court heard that Green has never shown remorse for the harm he caused to the victims.
