‘Monster’ paedo couple drugged, raped kids
A ‘MONSTER’ couple who got kids addicted to drugs and raped them for their twisted ‘pleasure’ have been caged.
Nicholas Taylor, 47, was sentenced to a minimum of 18 years behind bars after being found guilty of 62 offences, including rape, supplying Class A drugs and indecency with a child.
As he was sent down, he gave a thumbs-up from the dock and said: “Yeah, spot on.”
His wifeJoan, 44 – who was found guilty of 22 offences including rape and sexual activity with a child – was sentenced to 18 years in prison at Leicester Crown Court.
Sentencing them, Judge Nicholas Dean QC said: “You (Nicholas Taylor) caused children to become addicted to drugs and you used their bodies for your pleasure.
“In truth your behaviour stems from craven lack of any moral compass and your depraved appetite for drugs and sexual gratification.
“You raped children. You are an intelligent man, but a monster.
“I have looked to see whether you have any redeeming characteristics, whether there might be any prospect that you will ever be anything better than a monster. I see no good in you, I see no prospect of you changing.”
These included one girl who was injected with amphetamines to get her hooked and then driven to a lay-by to perform sex acts on a man, and a boy who was made to carry out sex acts on Nicholas and Jean in return for crack cocaine.
The court was told Mr Taylor, who had previously spent time behind bars, had tried to portray himself as a reformed character while continuing to offend.
Judge Dean said: “In fact, at the same time, you were depriving and corrupting young people with drugs and abusing them sexually.”
He added: “You are a very, very dangerous man.”
The judge said the actions of the couple – described as “master manipulators” – had a devastating effect on the lives of their victims.
One victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the court: “A few years ago I tried to kill myself.
“I wanted to die because of what he (Nicholas Taylor) has done to me.
“What happened was a long time ago but it still feels so raw.”
Staring at Taylor – who was slouched in the dock stroking his beard throughout the tearful statement – the woman, now in her 30s, said: “I would have been a different person if it had not been for him.
“What happened is there every day. I don’t have to think back to it, I live it every day.
“I’m not going to have any children because I don’t want to bring them into the world I live in.”
The crimes involved boys and girls as young as 11, between 1996 and 2006.
Speaking after the sentencing, Detective Inspector Adam Pendlebury said: "The Taylors plied their victims with drugs and alcohol before sexually abusing them and that abuse has had a lasting impact on their victims.
"Coming forward and giving evidence during the trial was incredibly brave and has led to two dangerous individuals being sent to prison for a very long time."
