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.peter brewer

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.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Louise Osborne of Truro CID said: “The police investigation commenced following disclosure from two victims. The investigation led officers to identify other offences with other individuals.
 
“We welcome the sentence and we hope this verdict will help to give some closure to the victims and allow them to move on with their lives. This has been an extremely difficult time for those involved who all showed great courage in coming forward. Their actions have led to bringing this man to justice which has resulted in today’s sentence.
 
"Hopefully this sends out a message that no matter how long ago crimes were committed, if the victims have the courage to come forward and speak to police, we will investigate and prosecute.”
