Worcestershire double rapist jailed

|News, Sexual offences

A 28-year-old man who raped a woman while on bail for the rape of another woman has been sentenced to 17 years imprisonment.

Daniel Jones of Hancocks Lane, Welland, was sentenced today (12 November 2021) at Worcester Crown Court for subjecting two women to terrifying sexual attacks.

He was found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of theft at the same court last month.

The court heard how Jones met his victims on social media and had arranged to meet them in person. It was explained that he had an interest in 'domination, strangulation and rape fantasies.’

He had started a consensual sexual relationship with his first victim before he raped her a month later. He persisted in the rape despite her repeatedly saying no.

Jones was arrested for rape and was on bail with a condition requiring him to wear a monitoring tag when he met his second victim.

The police were contacted to report that his GPS monitoring tag had a low battery, and when officers attended his address, they found Jones with the second victim. She later disclosed that she had been raped.

Daniel Jones was arrested for breach of bail and rape. He appeared before Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court on 3 February 2021, where he was remanded in custody on the basis that he had breached his bail conditions and committed a new offence while on bail.

The prosecution case is that Jones wanted to control his sexual partners, and that the rape of the first victim was punishment because she had rejected him.

During his police interview, Jones denied any wrongdoing but was convicted by the jury for both rapes.

Dawn Cartwright of the CPS said: “Jones subjected two different women to despicable ordeals and it is right that he has been brought to justice. We are committed to prosecuting those who commit rape and other serious sexual offences and supporting victims throughout the process.

“The prosecution applied for both cases to be heard in one trial because of the link between them. Both involved Mr Jones’ reaction to rejection, his pursuit of sexual fantasies, obsessive behaviour, and violent sexual activity. Our thoughts are with the victims.

“They were brave in coming forward and were supported by the CPS and police during the course of the investigation and proceedings. We hope that they are now able to move on with their lives in the knowledge that the perpetrator of these crimes has been convicted and sentenced to a substantial period of imprisonment.”
