Truro Rape Case: Sentencing
2:33pm 6th December 2012
A teenager has been sentenced for raping a girl at a birthday party in Truro.
A court heard how George Gray from East Lyng near Taunton covered his victim's mouth to stop her crying out last October.
A judge told the 19 year old who has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder "you have shown no remorse".
He will serve four years.
Following the hearing, Detective Sergeant Ian Reed from Devon and Cornwall Police, said: "We welcome today’s sentence which followed the conviction of George Gray of what was an extremely serious sexual assault on this young student.
"The fact that Gray put his victim through the ordeal of giving evidence added to her distress and we would like to acknowledge her courage throughout the investigation and subsequent trial."
"The victim’s strength of character has shone throughout this entire process and she is extremely satisfied and relieved with the jury’s verdict. It has been a very traumatic time for her and her family and hopefully this result will help to bring closure for them all.
"This result is the culmination of 14 months dedicated work by the investigation team and prosecution."
