The 22-year-old man who two weeks ago pleaded guilty to three rape charges, was today sentenced to sixty-two years in jail for the crimes.
The man, Leon Jordan, appeared before Justice Brassington Reynolds this morning and showed no signs of emotion as the sentence was handed down.
Two weeks back, he entered a guilty plea to the rape of a 7-year-old girl, a 14-year-old girl and a 28-year-old woman.
The incidents occurred between June 2012 and October 2016.
During the hearing today, the Court was told that in all three cases, the convict used violence before attacking his victims. In two of the cases he used an ice pick to threaten the victims while in the third case, he used a knife.
In statements to the Court through the Probation Officer, the victims all spoke about the trauma that they have been left to face for the rest of their lives.
Justice Reynolds said he could not understand how the youth who appeared quiet could have such a different side to him.
He sentenced him to sixty-two years in jail and said he hoped that some help could be offered to him.
