| October 27, 2016

A 37 year old man has been convicted of five counts of rape that took place in High Wycombe.

Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police a 37 year old man, of no fixed abode, was found guilty of five counts of rape by unanimous jury at Amersham Crown Court on Monday 24th October 2016.

The offences relate to one victim and took place in High Wycombe between 2013 and 2014.

The convicted man is due to be sentenced at the same court on Monday 21st November 2016.

Investigating officer, Det Con Frances Robinson of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit based at Aylesbury police station, said: ‘I am pleased that following a six day trial the jury has been unanimous in convicting [the man] of five counts of rape.

This conviction was as a result of a long and complex investigation carried out by Thames Valley Police and the Crown Prosecution Service.

This was a harrowing case involving a young vulnerable girl who has struggled to come to terms with the horrific abuse inflicted upon her. She has shown great strength and bravery during the investigation and court process which eventually brought about the conviction of this dangerous offender.

My thanks go out to everyone who supported the victim during this difficult and emotive process.
