Telford child rapist, 36, behind bars over crimes committed when he was a youth

A Telford man has been immediately put behind bars after he was found guilty of sex offences committed when he was a youth.

Richard Dimmock, 36, of Waltondale, Woodside, was found guilty of two counts of rape of a child and and seven counts of indecent assault between 1996 and 1999.

Dimmock had denied all the charges, but the jury returned a unanimous verdict on the historic offences at Shrewsbury Crown Court today. He will be sentenced in April.

Judge Anthony Lowe told him: "The sentence will inevitably be I’m afraid, a lengthy custodial one. In view of that you must remain in custody until you are sentenced.”
