Re: A London man in his 50s has been sent to jail for 21 years for eleven historical sexual offences against children, including rape, which he committed while living in south Wales.<br />
Ian James Walters, who is 57 and who lives in Barking, was sentenced following a trial at Newport Crown Court on 2nd February, 2017.<br />
He lived in the Adamsdown and Llanrumney areas of the city when he committed the offences against teenage girls and would have been in his 30s at the time.<br />
It wasn’t until 2015 and 2016 that his two victims reported what happened to them between the years 1994 and 2000.<br />
Walters was arrested in March 2016 and was subsequently charged with multiple historic sex offences against children. He pleaded not guilty to all charges leaving the case to go to trial, but was found guilty of all offences in January 2017.<br />
Detective Constable Rebecca Fox, who led the investigation, said: “This was a very complex investigation due to the time that had passed, but one which has ended in justice for the two victims.<br />
“He prayed on two young girls who were vulnerable and he had banked his freedom on them never having the courage to come forward after he told them nobody would ever believe them all those years ago.<br />
“But they did, and I have nothing but praise and respect for the bravery that these two victims – now grown women – have shown.<br />
“I hope this verdict provides them with some closure knowing that he hasn’t got away with what were disgusting crimes.<br />
“I also hope it encourages others to come forward and to realise that it is never too late for somebody to pay the price for what they did even if it was many years ago.”
