Mark Wilson, of March, Cambridgeshire, jailed for sexual offences including strangulation of teenage girl in Thetford

A 32-year-old man has been jailed for a number of sexual offences including the strangulation of a teenage girl and the possession of indecent images.

Mark Wilson, of Gaul Road, March, Cambridgeshire, was jailed for three years following a hearing at Norwich Crown Court on Friday, May 10.

Between September 2016 and the end of 2017 in Thetford, Wilson twice strangled a teenage girl, including one occasion where she lost consciousness and kept passing out.

He was made subject to restraining orders against two victims and was issued with a sexual harm prevention order.

He also attempted to indecently touch another girl.

Wilson had previously admitted to two counts of sexual assault by strangulation, one count of sexual assault, one count of possessing an extreme pornographic image and three counts of making an indecent photograph of a child.

An investigation was launched and his devices, a mobile phone and laptop, were seized.

Analysis revealed they contained category A, B, and C videos and still images which were indecent.

In a statement read to the court, one of Wilson’s victims described how she was still feeling the effects of the trauma she had experienced.

She detailed how she could not sleep, had become depressed and continued to struggle with the emotional aftermath.

In her statement she described his ‘seemingly blasé attitude when it came to committing sexual offences against young women’, and added ‘the nightmare of what you did remains fresh in my mind’.
