Barrow pensioner who raped young girl faces jail

A BARROW rapist who carried out a string of sex attacks on a young girl faces jail.

John Peter Hallam, 65, of Black Butts Lane, Walney, appeared for trial at Aylesbury Crown Court earlier this month.

He had previously pleaded not guilty to five counts of rape and three counts of indecent assault when he appeared at the same court last November. The pensioner appeared before a judge and jury between April 8 and 17 when the case was outlined.

The court was told the sex offences took place between 1983 and 1985, and related to a girl under the age of 16.

Hallam maintained his innocence, but was found guilty of all charges by the jury.

His case was adjourned until April 30 when he will be sentenced at either Aylesbury Crown Court or Amersham Crown Court.

Crown Prosecution Service guidelines for the sentencing of individuals who have committed repeated acts of rape on an individual say the sentencing range is 13 to 19 years in custody.
