Stafford paedophile caged for raping teenage boy



A predator from Stafford who raped a teenage boy has been jailed for 11-and-a-half years.

Richard Sherriff was found guilty of the rape of a teenage boy between May 2008 and February 2009 in Stafford at a trial at Stafford Crown Court.

And the 40-year-old of Main Road, Little Haywood, was handed the custodial sentence on Friday, March 19.

Sherriff was also found not guilty of assault by penetration of the same boy between the same dates.

Detective Inspector Zoe Kelsall, of Staffordshire Police, said: “I hope that this case demonstrates that although time has passed we will always remain committed to supporting victims and delivering justice.

“I want to pay tribute to the victim and the courage he demonstrated in helping us to bring this case before the courts.

“We will always do whatever it takes to bring offenders to justice while ensuring victims and their families are offered the support they need.”

Anyone who has suffered sexual abuse, or suspects others may be subject to sexual abuse, is urged to contact Staffordshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
