(BIRMINGHAM, UK) Wolverhampton Crown Court Report: A Wolverhampton rapist has been jailed for 24yrs after subjecting two young girls to years of sexual abuse #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.19: The 37-year-old, from Swindon in Wiltshire, had been living in Wolverhampton when he began his abuse of the first girl by sexual touching, before raping her. The abuse continued for several years until the girl found the courage to report what was happening to her.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Joseph Smith used his position of trust to prey on the girls from a young age for more than four years until his arrest in June 2019.

Joseph Smith

18th January 2022

COURT CASE NOTES:

When detectives from our Public Protection Unit began their investigation, it emerged that Smith had also abused a second girl by sexually assaulting her.

Smith denied the charged and forced both survivors to endure a two week trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court which ended on 24 November 2021 when the jury found him guilty of nine counts of sexual assault and nine counts of rape.

On Thursday (13 Jan) Smith was sentenced to 24 years in prison and will remain on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Detective Constable Kerry Bromhall said:

Smith subjected the girls to years of physical abuse, not to mention the psychological torment that such abuse often leaves behind.

“I commend these young girls for their bravery, firstly in coming forward to report what happened to them, but also in continually reliving their experience through a lengthy investigation, hampered by Covid, and giving evidence at trial.

“I truly hope this sentence gives them the closure they need and the knowledge that Smith is no longer able to do this to anyone else.”

If you have been subjected to sexual abuse, no matter how long ago, we have specialist officers to help you. We work with a range of agencies who can offer advice and support.

(WOLVERHAMPTON, U.K.) Court Report: A man has been jailed for 10 years after hitting his victim with a hammer several times during one of two horrifying attacks #AceNewsDesk report

(WOLVERHAMPTON) Court Report: A killer who carried out a sustained attack on a father-of-two following a chance meeting has on the 19 March been jailed for life #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.22: Mr Busma was discovered dead with a stab wound to the chest, burn marks and injuries consistent with being stamped on at Wilkin’s flat:

Man jailed over brutal Wolverhampton murder: ‘Simon Wilkins tortured 39-year-old Arturas Busma and left him with multiple injuries before handing himself into police’

19th March 2021:

WM POLICE CASE NOTES: He had been lured to the address in Tettenhall Road on 20 April last year after they had met outside a nearby convenience store and had purchased alcohol. There is nothing to suggest they had ever met before and Mr Busma had been in the wrong place at the wrong time: The next day Wilkins attended Wolverhampton police station and stated he had punched a man who now wasn’t breathing. The 28-year-old claimed Mr Busma had pulled a knife on him and he retaliated: The only evidence we found after descending on the address was Mr Busma’s badly beaten body after what we believe was a sustained attack: Wilkins pleaded guilty to the murder but his version of Mr Busma being the aggressor was not accepted by the court and he was jailed for a minimum of 17 and a half years at Wolverhampton Crown Court: The case against a 33-year-old woman who was also initially charged with murder was dropped:

Detective Inspector Laura Harrison, from our homicide unit, said: “Sadly the family of Mr Busma will never really know why their loved one was taken away in such a brutal way: “ It appeared he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and happened to come across Wilkins. He was persuaded to go the flat and it was there he was killed: “ We can only hope the lengthy prison sentence will offer some comfort to Mr Busma’s family and friends.”
