A predatory sex offender has been jailed for 21 years after sexually abusing two children.
Jay Wood, aged 33, targeted the girls at an address in Nottingham and was exposed when one of his victims told her teacher about what had happened.
After briefly going on the run, Wood was arrested and made a full and frank admission to officers in his police interview.
He later pleaded guilty to one count of rape, three counts of sexual assault and one count of engaging in sexual activity with a child.
Appearing at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday (31 October), Wood, of HMP Nottingham, was jailed for a total of 21 years.
Detective Constable Alan Braisby, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“This was an appalling catalogue of offending that was finally brought to an end by the bravery and determination of Wood’s victims.
“Their testimony in this investigation was compelling and I am full of admiration for them both.
“Wood is a predatory offender who caused huge emotional damage to his victims for his own sexual gratification. I am pleased he has now been jailed and that he can no longer pose a risk to children.
“Offences of this nature can have a lifelong impact on victims who we know can be reluctant to come forward.
“Sometimes they feel they won’t be believed, and sometimes they just don’t want to talk about what happened to them.
“I would, then, like to reassure all victims of sexual assault that we will thoroughly investigate all allegations that are made to us and follow the evidence where it takes us.”
