It comes as a comfort when you see violent sexual predators receive hefty jail sentences, and Judges do not listen to the pathetic excuses spouted by defence lawyers. Ashley Barber, from Derby, was such a sadistic predator. He had a girlfriend in the Midlands, who initially went along with his increasingly violent sexual demands. He also raped her a number of times. He then started smoking Cannabis - No EXCUSE! - and surfing the Net for porn after this "relationship" ended. Barber then met up with a woman from Bradford, who, like the first woman, went along with his sick demands, but she eventually reported him to Police after a violent rape. When news of this reached the woman in the Midlands, she found the courage to go to the Police and told all about the abuse she suffered at the hands of Barber.
Barber, 26, stood trial at Bradford Crown Court, and faced four counts of rape. The first three occurred between January 2010 and December of 2011. The Bradford woman, Barber violently raped last July, 2013. The Judge, giving no quarter, sentenced this sick bastard to 17 years prison. Detective Sergeant Suzanne Hall of the Bradford District Safeguarding Unit, urged victims of violence and sexual assault to come forward, as this case illustrated the care the officers gave to the victims and the determination of the Police to put these men in jail.
