A 43-year-old man has been jailed for nine years today (Tuesday 21 February) after admitting raping and sexually assaulting a Doncaster teenager, resulting in her becoming pregnant with his child.
Glen Sambrook, formerly of Conisbrough, Doncaster, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court today and pleaded guilty to 11 offences including two counts of rape, one count of sexual assault, six counts of sexual activity with a child, and two counts of paying for sexual services of a child.
He was sentenced to nine years in prison and given a restraining order.
Police began their investigation into Sambrook in September 2015 after the victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, came forward to report that Sambrook had raped and sexually abused her over a 13-month period.
Investigating officer DC Nichole Russell said: “Although Sambrook has accepted responsibility for his awful crimes, this does not detract from the significant impact this abuse has had on his victim.
“He manipulated and exploited his teenage victim, forcing her to commit sexual acts against her will.
“I am pleased he is now behind bars and I hope his victim, who has been remarkably brave throughout our investigation, is reassured knowing her abuser is in prison and can no longer harm her.”
