|Sex beast in Wales jailed for continuing `campaign of sexual violence' against young girl
A young father of four in Wales who abused and raped a child under 13 over several years has been jailed for 15 years by a court, a media report said.
Matthew James Troakes, 33, from Aberdare, was covicted of 10 counts of continued sexual abuse of a young girl. The charges included sexual assault, rape, and attempted rape. He will be registered as a sex offender for life.
The jury was unanimous in their verdict, WalesOline reported.
The girl's parents believe the jail term should have been longer.
Prosecutor Ieuan Morris, told the court, Troakes took "every opportunity to be alone with her in order to gain pleasure from sexually interfering with her."
The court was told that on one occasion Troakes abused her while his own baby daughter was in his arms.
The judge described it as a "campaign of sexual violence against a child.''
Defense lawyer John Ryan, said Troaks had "lost his good character'' and shamed his parents.
