(GRT MANCHESTER) Minshull St Crown Court Report:An ex-footballer who raped six young girls over a five year period has today been jailed for 24 years #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.25: The girl told her sister and her mother and when her mother confided in a friend, she learned of similar reports by two other girls.

#AceDailyNews reports that the Ex-footballer jailed for sexually abusing young girls: Jonathan Diba-Musangu, 23, was convicted of 12 sexual offences against six victims he targeted between 2012 and 2017 according to CPS…..The former Rochdale goalkeeper’s youngest victim was just seven years old when he raped her in 2012: He was sentenced today at Minshull St Crown court, Manchester.

24 September 2021:

On a separate occasion in a church hall event, Diba-Musangu suggested the children dance in pairs. He then took one of the girls to the bathroom and sexually abused her. He also sexually abused another girl in the bathroom later that day.

In 2015: Diba-Musangu began talking to a 15-year-old girl on Snapchat and asked her to send explicit images and videos. On separate occasions, he assaulted and raped her.

In 2016: He raped a 12-year-old at a church summer camp. He then took photos of her and threatened to show them to others if she told anyone what he had done.

In 2017: Diba-Musangu raped a 12-year-old after she challenged him over lies he had been telling about them being in a relationship.

He was arrested in 2018 after many of the victims began confiding in each other and realised they were suffering similar abuse. 

Diba-Musangu denied the allegations and said those accusing him were attempting to ruin his life.

The case against Diba-Musangu relied heavily on witness accounts. Working closely with Greater Manchester Police, the CPS also analysed more than one million strands of mobile phone data which was put into charts for the jury to follow.

In July, following a trial at the Lowry Nightingale Court in Salford, Diba-Musangu was convicted of three counts of rape of a child under 13, two counts of rape, two counts of sexually assaulting a child under 13, two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and three counts of sexual activity with a child.

Claire Marsh of the CPS said: ‘’Jonathan Diba-Musangu treated these young girls as objects for his own sexual gratification. He exploited their vulnerability without any thought to the devastating impact of his abuse on their lives: He exploited the church setting and his position as a footballer to commit these offences and sought to discredit the adults who came forward in support of the girls: Rape is a truly devastating and life-changing crime and our prosecutors see the trauma it can cause victims every day. I would therefore like to commend these young women and girls for coming forward and I hope this sentence helps them feel justice has been served.”

The CPS is determined to drive up the number of rape cases reaching court across the country. Earlier this year, along with the National Police Chiefs’ Council, we published the Joint National Action Plan which sets out a wide-ranging plan for greater collaboration to improve the response to RASSO cases.

The CPS is one year in to a five-year strategy to bring about a step change in how it works with all parts of the criminal justice system to reverse the sharp drop in prosecutions.

We have also recently updated our RASSO legal guidance to reflect rape myths and stereotypes in an age of changing sexual behaviours and the latest insights into the impact of trauma.

Additional Case Notes:

  • Claire Marsh is a Senior Crown Prosecutor with CPS North West
  • Jonathan Diba-Musangu was found guilty of 3 counts of rape of a child under 13, 2 counts of rape, 2 counts of sexually assaulting a child under 13, 2 counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and 3 counts of sexual activity with a child
  • Jonathan Diba-Musangu was sentenced to 24 years in prison and then on an extended licence recall for four years

(LONDON) Lewes Crown Court Report: A mother who abandoned her baby for six days while celebrating her 18th birthday has been jailed for manslaughter #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.07: Kudi initially denied her absence, stating she had been present at the flat as both she and Asiah felt unwell, only admitting to leaving on the 10th to visit London, but claimed her daughter was with her.

#AceDailyNews reports that a mother was sentenced for the manslaughter of her 20-month-old baby the court heard Verphy Kudi left Asiah, aged just 20 months, alone in her Brighton flat between 5 and 11 December 2019, resulting in the child starving to death.

06 August 2021

However, CCTV footage, phone data and further evidence including witness statements, demonstrated that she had left her daughter alone: Kudi, now 19, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in March this year and was sentenced to nine years, today at Lewes Crown Court.

Libby Clark, of CPS South East,said: This has been a deeply harrowing case involving the death of a 20-month-old baby: “ Asiah’s mother Verphy Kudi had a duty to keep her safe from harm, but instead selfishly chose to put her own need to party and be with her friends above all else. The consequences of her decision meant that Asiah must have suffered dreadfully during the days and nights that she was alone in the flat: “ This follows a history of multiple earlier occasions of abandonment and neglect. I extend my deepest sympathies to Asiah’s grandparents and other family for their loss.” Returning to her flat after six days, Kudi placed a 999 call to South East Coast Ambulance saying her baby wasn’t waking up: Paramedics attending the scene found Asiah not breathing, and rushed her to the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, where tragically she was pronounced dead soon after arrival: The post-mortem examination concluded the cause of death was starvation and influenza, with reported signs of dehydration and severe nappy rash.

Information from the public is vital and we will continue to act on all that we receive: “ We will continue to work tirelessly to remove drug dealers from our streets and provide our communities with a safe place to live, work and visit. My message to those engaged in organised crime is clear: we know who you are, we can see where you are operating, and we will come knocking.”

Anyone with information on drug dealing in supply in their community is asked to contact @MerPolCC, call 101 or Crimestoppers UK anonymously on 0800 555 111. Always call 999 if a crime is in progress.

(GRT MANCHESTER) Crown Court Report: A man who sexually assaulted 19 women and a teenage girl in the space of a week has been jailed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.07: The charges against Etchells relate to a series of sexual assaults that occurred between 1 March 2021 and 7 March 2021 on canal tow paths along the Bridgewater Canal, the River Mersey and along the Trans Pennine Trail.

#AceDailyNews reports that on Friday 6 August 2021 at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court, Joshua Etchells (26/5/01) of Lowton Road, Sale has been jailed for 14 months after pleading guilty to 20 counts of sexual assault by touching & following his release he will also be required to sign the sex offenders register for 10 years.

EtchellsSentencing.jpg

Etchells assaulted 19 women and a teenage girl across the seven day period, including nine women on one day alone.

His offending followed a similar pattern for all of his victims in that they were all either walking or running, often alone, down the tow path when Etchells would approach them from behind on a bicycle.

As he approached and began to pass the women, he would then either grab or slap their bottom and quickly flee the scene on his bike. On two occasions, Etchells approached the victim head on and cycled past them before turning around and cycling back towards them from behind. As he passed, he sexually assaulted them.

Following an assault on the Trans Pennine Trail, one of Etchell’s victims along with a family member decided to drive around the local area to locate him. As they drove around they spotted a male she was confident was Etchells and she shouted out the window at him.

Ignoring her shouts, she managed to take photographs of him, which she then passed over to police.

A full investigation was launched by GMP and on Saturday 13 March, plain clothed officers were on patrol in an unmarked vehicle in Sale and noticed Etchells on his bike and identified him as the male wanted for multiple sexual assaults.

He was subsequently arrested and his bike – that matched the description of the bicycle reported to police – was seized.

Following interview Etchells was subsequently charged.

Detective Inspector Helen Bagnall of GMP’s Trafford district said: “Firstly I want to extend my thanks and gratitude to all the women who came forward to report the assault. Reporting such incidents is never easy but thanks to their support during the investigation and initial detailed descriptions of Etchells we have been able to secure a conviction today: “ Etchells’ twisted behaviour was nothing short of deplorable and he felt he was untouchable and would be able to flee each assault with little consequence. I’m glad we’ve now been able to place him behind bars where he will have plenty of time to reflect on his actions: “ I hope today also serves as a reminder that GMP will do all in its power to ensure those responsible for such disgusting behaviour are identified and face the appropriate justice. No woman should be made to feel unsafe when she walks the street and I’m glad that today we have been able to remove another dangerous individual from our community.”
