Man convicted of numerous sexual offences and theft - Oxfordshire

30/03/2015

A man appeared at Oxford Crown Court today, Monday, 30 March 2015, and pleaded guilty to a series of sex offences against multiple victims at locations across Oxfordshire.

Andrew Hutchinson, aged 29, of Garford, near Abingdon, Oxfordshire, pleaded guilty to a total of 27 counts including rape, voyeurism, sexual assault and theft against victims aged between 10 and 35 between 2011 and 2013.

Andrew Hutchinson was arrested by Thames Valley Police on suspicion of voyeurism offences at the White Horse Leisure Centre, Abingdon in November 2013. Hutchinson was initially charged on 5 December 2014 and was charged with further offences on 30 January 2015. Reporting restrictions have been in place from first charge until today.

At the time of his arrest, Hutchinson was employed as a staff nurse at the Emergency Departments of the John Radcliffe Hospital. Since his arrest he has not worked for and is no longer an employee of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust.

His arrest led to the detection of further offences from images, which were recovered on devices seized from him, including a mobile phone, computer equipment, memory stick and camera.

The victims in the images of sex offences had been unaware that offences had been committed against them because they were unconscious at the time the offences took place.

The victims of the voyeurism offences, apart from those who had made reports to police, had been unaware that they were being recorded or filmed.

Hutchinson will be sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Monday, 27 April 2015.
