Hampshire man jailed for six and a half years for raping and sexually assaulting children

|News, Sexual offences , Youth crime

A man from East Boldre, near Brockenhurst, has been jailed for six and a half years for raping and sexually assaulting three children.

Jack Lowe, aged 26, was found guilty of one count of rape, two counts of attempted rape, seven counts of sexual assault of a child under 13, three counts of causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity and one count of attempting to cause a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity. He was sentenced today (16 February 2022) at Southampton Crown Court.

Lowe repeatedly sexually abused the victims over a period of five years, between 2007 and 2012.

The children were aged between 7 and 13 years old, whilst Lowe himself was aged between 11 and 16 years old.

Andrea Hills, CPS Wessex Senior Crown Prosecutor, said: “Jack Lowe sexually assaulted the victims in this case whilst they were very young. They did not know what was happening to them at that time and did not know that it was not normal behaviour.

“We would like to pay tribute to the bravery of the victims for coming forward and supporting this prosecution.

“We hope that today’s sentence makes it clear that the passage of time will not stop us from bringing offenders to justice, and indeed that it serves as a warning to other young perpetrators that your age is not a barrier to prosecution.”
