Southampton Sexual predator jailed for 26 years

618

Drugged & filmed victims

Paedophile Neil Robins attacked six girls, the youngest 13 years old.

Robins was convicted of a total of 14 charges ranging from rape, sexual assault, making indecent images and voyeurism.

He was sentenced to 26 years at Southampton Crown Court.

Robins denied the charges. The court heard how the 41 year old began the abuse in 2012. Giving alcohol to the girls until they were too drunk to resist what was being done to them.

Victims finally came forward to Police in 2016.

 

The court was told how he covertly recorded his victims before he hid the saved images on his mobile phone.

Judge Christopher Parker QC heard the case.

Prosecuting for the crown Nicholas Tucker read impact statements from some of the victims.

One read: “I have changed as a person. It has been a period of destruction.”

Another said: “I feel disgusted… it feels as though I should be punished.”

 

Robins had a previous conviction in 1995 when he was convicted of a similar charge, having pushed a woman into a bush, ordered her to remove her clothes and taking her bra & pants and running away.

Judge Christopher Parker said Robins “posed a significant risk to children and teenagers”

He said: “You deliberately encouraged those people to drink large amounts of

alcohol so they were unconscious when you abused them.’

“They were vulnerable.”

The Judge added: ‘This will have a profound effect on the victims, more so than they probably can imagine.’

Robins, of Orchard Court, Southampton, was sentenced to 26 years in prison.

He will have to serve at least 11 years before he is considered for parole.
