Newmarket pensioner Trevor Monk jailed for seven years after rape of teenage girl

A Newmarket pensioner has been jailed for seven years for the rape of a vulnerable teenage girl.

Seventy-year-old Trevor Monk, of Engelhard Road, had denied three counts of rape, sexual assault, and causing the girl to engage in sexual activity without consent but finally admitted two rape offences on July 26, the day he had been due to stand trial, sparing his victim the further trauma of having to relive her ordeal through giving evidence in court.

The remaining two offences are to remain on file.

She also imposed an indefinite restraining order banning him from ever contacting his victim.
