Penryn Window Cleaner Jailed for Rapes
7:03am 15th January 2013
A Penryn windowcleaner is handed ten years behind bars for three rapes.
One involved a fourteen year old girl.
Truro Crown Court heard how Peter Brewer from Burnthouse carried out the attacks over almost a decade.
The thirty-two year old will have to sign the sex offenders register for life.
Brewer was acquitted of three further rapes and an indecent assault.
Judge David Ticehurst said that he had had little or no regard for his victims. An aggravating feature was that offences had been committed over a period of time.
Defence counsel Robert Linford told the court that Brewer was effectively a man of good character with a good work ethic.
He had served in the Army until being discharged on medical grounds.
The judge ordered Brewer to sign on the Sex Offenders' Register for the rest of his life.
