GEORGETOWN, Guyana, June 26, 2019 (CMC) – Two weeks after he pleaded guilty to raping three people, including a seven year old child, Leon Jordan was, today, sentenced to 62 years in jail for the offences.
Justice Brassington Reynolds imposed the sentence on Jordan, who, between June 2012 and October 2016, raped the seven-year-old, a 14-year-old, as well as a 28-year-old woman.
The Court was told that in all three cases, the accused used violence before attacking his victims. In two of the cases he used an ice pick to threaten the victims, while in the third case, he used a knife.
In statements to the Court, through the Probation Officer, the victims all spoke about the trauma that they have been left to face for the rest of their lives.
Justice Reynolds said he could not understand how Jordan, who appeared quiet, could have such a different side to him. He showed no emotion as the sentences were imposed on him.
