Trainee vicar convicted of raping two women

Published

on

A former youth leader and trainee vicar has been convicted of rape of two women.

Timothy Storey, 35 (10.05.80) of Peckham Grove, Peckham, was found guilty of the following offences:

– three counts of rape
– one assault by penetration.

He was found guilty at Woolwich Crown Court today, Thursday 18 February following a retrial.

All offences relate to two women, aged in their 20s, and were committed between early 2008 and 2009.

Storey was known to both women as a youth leader at church and summer camps which they attended.

He later became a trainee vicar (ordained). From an early age the women attended the groups he led.

Over time he befriended the women and gradually became more inappropriate with them, sending them messages of a sexual nature including on social media and texting.

He managed to manipulate both women into meeting with him.
One of the women had a much longer relationship with him where he subjected her to inappropriate phone calls to differing degrees of sexual intimacy.

Using his position as a youth leader he gained the victim’s trust which enabled the sexual activities to continue.

On two separate occasions between 2008 and 2009, Storey sexually assaulted the woman.

On another occasion the other woman agreed to meet him to go to a concert.

Whilst at the concert, Storey used this as an opportunity to take advantage of her eventually taking her back to his home and assaulting her.

In May 2014, Storey was convicted of several offences whereby he had groomed girls between the ages of 10 to 16 years and encouraged them to perform sexual acts via social media.

Following his conviction and subsequent three year sentence, the two women came forward to report that they too had been victims of Storey.

On 24 July 2014 Storey was arrested for the offences he committed against the women and on 17 May 2014 he was later charged.

Storey was remanded to be sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court on 15 April.

DC Paul Hill, of the Met’s Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: “The victims in this case were young teenagers when Storey assaulted them, having been groomed from a very young age. In his position as a youth leader he manipulated the victims and forced them to engage in sexual acts that they did not want to do.

“They have shown courage in coming forward after so many years to tell us what happened to them. This conviction goes to show that the sexual offences, exploitation and child abuse command will pursue sex offenders and bring them to justice.

“Storey thought he had got away with it, but the victims in this case were determined to see him brought to justice. With appropriate support from the police and our partners I urge any other victims of Timothy Storey to come forward and tell us what has happened to them.”

Anyone with further information is asked to call the police non-emergency line on 101.

The family of British man have been left devastated and furious after an Egyptian hospital because staff switched off his life support without their permission.

Despite this the hospital claim Adrian King suffered cardiac arrest however his family have told the local courts it’s because they didn’t have the money to pay a £7k insurance bill.

Adrian aged 39 became ill while he was on holiday with his friend in Hurghada, on Egypt’s east coast.

All of a sudden he fell unconscious and was being treated in hospital, during his time in hospital it was discovered his insurance policy have been voided and they demanded an upfront payment while he laid on his death bed.

The inquest heard how the insurance was void as he had not declared a bacterial infection he had within his stomach two years before his holiday.

Adrian’s dad Charles Bumford told the hearing: “A man at the hospital stood in my son’s room and told me: ‘The insurance is null and void – you pay now or I switch off the machines.’

“I didn’t have the £7,000 ($9,800) he was asking for at that time. As he walked out of the room he started switching things off.”

Charles added that he tried contacting the hospital ’50 times’ but he never received an answer. The friend Adrian was with at the time, Nicola, was similarly confused by the situation occurring in the medical facility.

“They did the second dialysis and then said that the insurance was voided,” she told the inquest.

“They never said he had a cardiac arrest or anything, they said it was stopping, because the funding was stopped.”

Our thoughts are with the family of Adrian at this difficult time.

Jon Venables Reportedly Attacked With Boiling Water By Fellow Inmate

Published

Jon Venables attacked with boiling water by a fellow inmate. 

Jon Venables, one of the schoolboys who murdered James Bulger in 1993 has been attacked in prison after an image was released on social media.

Venables who is now aged 35 was attacked with boiling water and sugar after a fellow inmate managed to work out his identity.

Venables have been living under a fake name since 2001 and was sent back to jail having broken the conditions of his release and being found guilty of child pornography.

Venables was banned from travelling back to Liverpool but he had been attending music events and going to Everton Football matches.

He was later found to be in possession of cocaine and was also having a relationship with an underage girl.

Prison Officers were forced to place Venables on lockdown after his identity was revealed and he was attacked with boiling water and sugar.

it is alleged that Venables complained that guards did nothing at first to stop the attack from happening and offered him little help once he had been assaulted.

The Ministry of Justice confirmed to Police Hour that “incidents of this nature happen within prisons and we cannot discuss the nature of individual cases”

Now that the true identity of Venables is known within side the prison after images have been circulated among inmates it will be inevitable that another attack will happen.

Venables is currently serving a three-year sentence for child pornography offences and possession of 1,170 images of children which included babies.

It is believed inmates have been circulating images of Venables from prison to prison in the hope that one prisoner can identity him.

Facebook and Twitter this month removed images from their social media websites of various men who people claimed was Venables.

It is a criminal offence to name or identity Venables on social media due to an anonymity order granted in 2001 that prevents him from ever being named or identified.

Due to the nature of his repeat offending there is mounting pressure to scrap that order in order to prevent further children being targeted.

However due to the nature of Venables sick attack these orders are likely never to be removed.
