Girl nine locked in cupboard full spiders so she’d be so scared he could rape her

Published

Sick and twisted Luke Driver locked a nine-year-old girl in a dark cupboard that was full of spiders so that she’d be so scared she would have sex with him.

Luke Driver who was aged 14 – 16 during the time of the abuse has admitted he orally raped the girl twice and sexually assaulted her on two occasions and then indicted her into sexual activity.

He kissed the girl on the lips and put his tongue in her mouth, he escalated his offending until he orally raped her and attempted to force full sex on her.

When the nine-year-old refused her admitted when she refused sex he wanted to lock her in an understairs cupboard because she was scared of the dark and it was full of spiders. Adding she would be so scared she would agree to what he asked.

Now 21, Driver was given a prison sentence of four years at Gloucester Crown Court today.

Judge Jamie Tabor QC told Driver that if he had been an adult when he committed the offences he would have received a sentence close to double figures.

‘The girl was still a child, unaware of the birds and bees, but frightened of you because on at least one occasion when she didn’t do what you wanted to do you locked her in a cupboard till she agreed,’ said the judge.

‘You were yourself at the time a troubled boy, immature, and I accept to some degree that this was sexual experimentation.

‘But you knew perfectly well that what you were doing was wrong and that it was particularly wicked to invite a young girl to do it.’

The case dates back to June 2009 and the abuse continued until May 2011 when the girl was aged just nine and ten.

The girl released a victim impact statement ‘I only realised it was really, really wrong when I started reading things in my mum’s magazines and other peoples’ experiences. I felt sick about it. It was disgusting, it was nasty.

‘I started smoking weed when I was about 12. It helped to calm me down and make me feel better.

‘In October 2015 I was depressed and ended up taking an overdose and almost died. I did it because I wanted to die and I hated life.’

In December the girl broke down to her mum and told her exactly what driver had been doing.

Driver, of Lysons Avenue, Gloucester, was jailed for four years.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.

Awww Cleveland Police have just recruited these four legged friends

Published

on

Put your paws up for our two new recruits, Maggie and Skye who are the newest and youngest additions to the Force. At just 12 weeks old, the two English Springer Spaniels will soon begin their training to become Specialist Search Dogs.

Dog Trainer Constable Darren Gobie and Police Constable Chris Lambert are the lucky handlers of the pups. PC Lambert teamed up with a year 4 class at Myton Park School in Ingleby Barwick and allowed them to choose Skye’s name.

Chris and Skye will regularly visit the school over the next 18 months to allow them to follow her training process.

Speaking of the collaboration with the school, PC Lambert said: “I thought it would be a great idea to tie in with a school in the local community.

Recruiting new dogs is a huge deal and it’s an exciting and educational opportunity for the pupils to meet a police dog, choose her name collectively as a team and to better understand the training process for police dogs, and police roles in general.

The children were delighted to participate in this and I am sure they will all build a lovely bond with Skye over the coming months.”

PC Lambert, along with partner agencies will also be using the visits to the school to deliver lessons on internet safety and safety around animals.

The officers and the dogs will need to work very closely as team throughout the training process to build a special bond together.

Training is both mentally and physically challenging for both the dogs and handlers, as every programme must be passed to qualify.

Specialist dogs are used to detect a range of things with their highly developed sense of smell such as money, explosives, drugs and firearms.

They are also trained to work in public places including licenses premises to search for people in possession of narcotics.
