Michael Jackson jailed for rape in Southport

MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed that Michael Jackson, aged 31, from London, on Monday, 21 March 2016, was jailed for 11 years, following the rape of a woman, in Southport. Jackson was found guilty, on Thursday, 17 March 2016, of the rape of a 30 year old woman, at Pontins, in Southport in the early hours of 13 April 2014. Jackson must also sign the Sex Offender's Register for life and is disqualified from working with children and vulnerable adults for life.

Following the sentencing hearing at Liverpool Crown Court, Detective Constable Michelle Wilson, who investigated the incident, said:- "Michael Jackson subjected his victim to a vicious sexual assault for his own sexual gratification. I would like to praise the bravery and courage of the woman for telling the Police in the 1st instance and for the strength she showed during the court process. It is testament to her and the account she gave that we have been able to bring him to justice. Hopefully her bravery will encourage other victims to come forward and have the confidence in us to do the right thing and support them throughout their ordeal. Rape is a very personal crime, which many victims, understandably, struggle to come to terms with and it can have a devastating effect for the rest of their lives. There is no doubt that this has had a significant impact on his young victim, who will now have to live with this for her life. Her support of the Police investigation has led to a dangerous sexual predator being sent to jail and to other women being protected from him. If anybody else is out there suffering in silence I want you to know that there is help and support available to you, both from Merseyside Police, where we have specially trained officers who will listen to you and treat you with sensitivity and compassion, and from reliable and trusted support groups who will support you from your initial report and for as long as you need. There is a great deal of support and advice out there and we can put measures in place to help victims from the point they make a report to the Police right through to the court hearing. I would urge anyone who has been sexually assaulted or raped to find it within themselves to tell someone what has happened to them so that they do not continue to suffer in silence."
