A British pedophile who raped a young girl for 225 times from the age of six has been jailed for 16 years.
The man identified as Anthony Morgan, in a ‘campaign of rape’, targeted the young girl, ruining her life, especially while high on cocaine and alcohol, Metro UK reported.
Appearing before Liverpool Crown Court, Judge Andrew Menary who presided over the case told him:
'You repeatedly raped almost week in, week out that young girl, on too many occasions to count. What you have done to this girl is to essentially ruin her life up to this point. Who knows whether or not she will ever recover from the psychological ordeal and impact you have inflicted upon her.’
‘You accept you have an unhealthy and abiding sexual interest in young children. I have no doubt at all that you pose a high risk of serious harm to children and will continue to do for an indefinite and unquantifiable period in the future.’
Dan Travers, prosecuting, told the court: 'He would ask her to have sex and when she refused he would keep asking. He would eventually get angry and just do it anyway.
'It’s difficult to envisage a more serious campaign of rape,' he said
Morgan pleaded guilty to eight counts of rape and one count of attempted rape but denied raping the girl no fewer than 60 times before she turned five.
He was sentenced to 16 years in prison with an extended four years on licence after preying on his victim on 225 separate occasions. He will spend two-thirds of his sentence in prison before being considered for parole and will have to sign the sex offenders’ register for life.
