Drug-addled paedophile jailed for six years for ‘aggressive’ abuse of young girl.
Painter and decorator Nigel Geraint Mark Davies subjected victim under age of 13 to repeated assaults
Nigel Geraint Mark Davies, 40, from Wrexham, was jailed for six years
A drug-addled painter and decorator has been jailed for appalling sex crimes against a young girl.
Nigel Geraint Mark Davies repeatedly exploited his victim, a girl younger than 13, subjecting her to aggressive assaults.
When he was arrested after his victim confided in a friend, he gave a ‘no comment’ interview but handed over a typed, pre-prepared statement denying any inappropriate acts.
But when the case came to court, he admitted his crimes and, according to his barrister, accepted full responsibility.
Henry Hills, defending 40-year-old Davies at Mold crown court, said he’d been a man of good character who had no experience of what life was like behind bars.
But he accepted he was facing prison, and knew he had to co-operate with whatever rehabilitation was available to him inside.
When the offences occurred, he had been using drugs heavily. But that was no excuse, and may have actually aggravated his crimes by taking away his inhibitions.
Mr Hills added Davies had a strong work ethic and had been employed in painting and decorating and also in the retail trade.
“He understands that he will receive a substantial period in custody,” said Mr Hills.
Judge Huw Rees told him he had “exploited his victim for his own unhealthy instincts”.
Davies, of Empress Way in Wrexham , was jailed for six years and ordered to register with police as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
An NSPCC Cymru / Wales spokesman said: “Davies’ despicable actions will have caused severe damage to his young victim who will now need to be given help and support to overcome the trauma she has been through.
“Abuse ruins childhoods and it is right that Davies has faced justice to protect others from harm.
“The NSPCC runs a number of programmes in North Wales aimed at both protecting children from sexual exploitation and supporting children and young people after sexual abuse.”
