Painter and decorator paedophile jailed for abusing young girl; 40-YEAR-OLD 'EXPLOITED VICTIM FOR HIS OWN UNHEALTHY INSTINCTS'.

Byline: ELWYN ROBERTS Daily Post Correspondent welshnews@dailypost.co.uk

A DRUG-ADDLED painter and decorator has been jailed for appalling sex crimes against a young girl.

Nigel Geraint Mark Davies repeatedly exploited his victim, subjecting

her to "aggressive" assaults.

When he was arrested after his victim confided in a friend, he gave "no comment" in interview but handed over a typed, pre-prepared statement denying any inappropriate acts.

But when the case came to court the 40-year-old (right) admitted his crimes, and according to his barrister accepted full responsibility.

Henry Hills, defending, said Davies had been a man of good character who had no experience of what life was like behind bars.

But he accepted he was facing prison, and knew he had to cooperate with whatever rehabilitation was available to him inside.

He had been using drugs heavily when the offences occurred, said Mr Hills.

He added that Davies had a strong work ethic and had been employed in painting and decorating and also in the retail trade.

"He understands that he will receive a substantial period in custody," said Mr Hills.

Judge Huw Rees told Mold Crown Court yesterday Davies had "exploited his victim for his own unhealthy instincts".

Davies, of Empress Way, Wrexham, was jailed for six years and ordered to register with police as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

An NSPCC Cymru / Wales spokesman said after the hearing: "Davies' despicable actions will have caused severe damage to his young victim who will now need to be given help and support to overcome the trauma she has been through.

"Abuse ruins childhoods and it is right that Davies has faced justice to protect others from harm.

"The NSPCC runs a number of programmes in North Wales aimed at both protecting children from sexual exploitation and supporting children and young people after sexual abuse."
