19 February 2021:
Debbie Breen is a District Crown Prosecutor in the rape and serious sexual offences team in CPS North East said: “Robert Driver preyed on a vulnerable girl, grooming her from an early age before subjecting her to a lengthy campaign of sexual abuse: “ The effect of Driver’s actions on his victim has been significant and she is understandably deeply traumatised by his abuse: “ The CPS worked closely with Northumbria Police to build a robust case against Robert Driver, leaving him little option but to plead guilty to charges reflecting the scale of his offending: “ Our specialist team is committed to tackling rape and serious sexual violence offences like this and will continue to do so wherever the legal test is met.”
