A man was sentenced to 20 years in prison after he confessed to raping a minor two to three times a week for five years. Adrian Donaldson raped a young girl aged 12 to 17 at an address in Tottenham, North London, causing her to become pregnant with his child twice. And the court heard that Donaldson would rape the young girl who knew him, after he was drinking or using drugs, and make her send him nude pictures and ask her to visit him. She carried her child twice, miscarried both, and told her mother that the pregnancy was with her boyfriend at school.
The 37-year-old told his victim that if she told anyone about the abuse he would accuse her of “coming to him,” leaving the girl feeling suicidal and unable to report it. Donaldson was first arrested for sexual assault by touching a female under the age of 18 and later arrested on multiple counts of rape and causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent after police interviewed the victim. Initially, Donaldson denied all police allegations, but later pleaded guilty to seven counts of rape, attempted rape, sexual assault and causing a person to engage in sexual activity without their consent between 2015 and 2020.

In the end, the victim’s mother found out about her daughter’s plight and reported the police. When the officers went to his address, they found Donaldson drunk and attempting to assault the victim again. “This is a horrific crime and the victim has been through a terrible ordeal,” said Detective Sgt. Jill Cousins. The effects of these crimes on the victim will undoubtedly remain forever. I commend the courage the victim has shown in helping us bring this man to justice. “I urge anyone who has been a victim of recent or historical sexual assault to come forward and speak to the police.” About 90% of rape victims know their rapists and only 15% of those who have experienced sexual violence report The police do this.
