“His mantra is ‘I did the crime – and I’ve done my time’. Worboys is utterly convinced that he is going to be released.”

Worboys, 60, has already had £166,000 in legal aid but the cost of going to the European courts could easily sky-rocket to over £500,000, according to legal experts.

The cab driver is believed to have carried out more than 100 sexual assaults and rapes on women in London between 2002 and 2008. He gave his victims drug-laced champagne before attacking them in the back of his cab.

In 2009, he was convicted at Croydon Crown Court of 19 offences and was ordered to serve at least eight years in jail. Worboys, a

US gymnasts say sport is rife with verbal, emotional abuse

They were little girls with dreams of Olympic gold when they started in gymnastics. Now they’re women with lifelong injuries, suffocating anxiety and debilitating eating disorders.

They are the other victims of USA Gymnastics.

Thirteen former U.S. gymnasts and three coaches interviewed by the Associated Press described a win-at-all-costs culture rife with verbal and emotional abuse in which girls were forced to train on broken bones and other injuries. That culture was tacitly endorsed by the sport’s governing body and institutionalized by Bela and Marta Karolyi, the husband-and-wife duo who coached America’s top female gymnasts for three decades.

The gymnasts agreed to speak to AP, some for the first time, after the recent courtroom revelations

Jailed this week in Bristol: A rapist, speeding drug dealer and murdering husband

The list of those Jailed this week at Bristol Crown Court include a rapist, a murderer and a drug-dealer who crashed his BMW.

Mark Marchant

The 37-year-old of Handley Road in Cardiff was jailed for eight years for raping a woman who had crashed out on a sofa after a party in a Weston-super-Mare flat.

The woman told a judge at Bristol Crown Court that she wanted to ‘burn her skin off’ to rid herself of her abuser’s touch.

After people left to buy more drink and drugs Mark Marchant picked the woman up off the sofa, took her down to a bedroom and forced himself on her, the court heard.

When she regained consciousness due to the pain, Marchant pulled her towards him and attempted to have consensual sex instead of stopping.

Convicted rapist bound over for trial on child porn charges



A convicted rapist charged with having child pornography is headed for trial.

On Feb. 22 in Rochester Hills’ 52-3 District Court, Scott Edward Lutze, 33 of Oxford Township, waived his right to a preliminary exam on 11 charges related to child pornography. That cleared the way for District Judge Lisa Asadoorian to then bind him over to Oakland County Circuit Court where he is to be arraigned March 5 before Judge Cheryl Matthews.

Lutze faces five counts of possession child sexually abusive material and two counts each of child sexually abusive activity, child

Hickman encouraged them to ask for help to process what had happened to them and reiterated that it was not their fault.

“Don’t let this person define your life,” he said. “Don’t look back.”

Jurors convicted Morgan of five counts of first-degree child rape and five counts of first-degree child molestation in December.

Before the sentencing, deputy prosecutor Erica Eggertsen described the abuse as “extreme and repeated” and noted that the victims were young: ages 5, 10 and 11.

Waffle House CEO’s Wife Defends Husband in Sexual Harassment Imbroglio

Fran Rogers says accusations leveled against her husband, Waffle House CEO Joe Rogers Jr., branding him as a sexual predator are false and part of an effort to cover up an extortion attempt by a former housekeeper.

She said he is a victim, not a perpetrator.

The Waffle House CEO’s wife wrote the response and gave it to The Daily Report at a hearing Thursday after defense lawyers excoriated the Waffle House executive as a serial harasser who allegedly could bend the justice system to his will.

Mye Brindle, Joe Rogers’ former housekeeper, and her lawyers, former Cobb County prosecutor John Butters and Atlanta attorney David Cohen, face trial in April on charges they violated the state’s eavesdropping and surveillance law when Brindle secretly

Rapist who moved to Carmichael says ‘human beings can change.’ His neighbors aren’t convinced.

Christopher Lawyer, a Colorado man convicted of kidnapping and raping a woman in 2001, says the 16 years he spent in jail after his arrest have changed him for good.

In that time, he got off drugs, sought a healthier lifestyle and studied Buddhism, Lawyer said on Wednesday, speaking in a jailhouse interview. He eventually taught career classes to other inmates that focused on ethics and character.

“I’ve always taken responsibility for my crimes,” said Lawyer, who was arrested earlier this week for allegedly violating a curfew imposed as part of his parole. “Human beings can change. They can evolve and become better.”

His new neighbors in the Sacramento suburb of Carmichael aren’t giving him the benefit of the doubt. After discovering that he had settled in their midst, about 80 concerned residents packed a community meeting Wednesday night at the Carmichael Park Clubhouse. The meeting was hosted by Sacramento County Supervisor Susan

Coronation Street fans horrified as David Platt rapist Josh flirts with …

Newcomer Josh Tucker has been turning on the charm since arriving in Weatherfield – and viewers were horrified when he turned his attention on Sarah Platt on tonight’s Coronation Street .

Soap fans are aware that Josh will drug and sexually assault David in shock Corrie scenes next month, so they were unsettled to see the mechanic chatting up his older sister in Roy’s Rolls.

Josh cosied up to the mother-of-two after David informed him the man who held her hostage, drug addict Lee Mayhew, was back in Weatherfield.

The two men then bundled Billy the vicar’s brother into a van and drove him away.

One fan tweeted: “That Josh better stay away from Sarah I mean it.”

And viewer Nicole said: “Sarah I wouldn’t go for the Josh bloke, if I was you…..”
