Mark Wilson Jailed for Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Images

Mark Wilson, a 32-year-old man from March, Cambridgeshire, has been sentenced to three years in prison at Norwich Crown Court for a series of sexual offences committed in Thetford between 2016 and 2017. The charges include two counts of sexual assault by strangulation, one count of sexual assault, possession of an extreme pornographic image, and three counts of making indecent photographs of a child.

Why this matters: This case highlights the disturbing reality of sexual violence and exploitation of minors, which can have long-lasting and devastating effects on the victims. It also underscores the importance of holding perpetrators accountable and ensuring that the justice system takes these crimes seriously.

The court heard that Wilson strangled a teenage girl twice, once to the point of unconsciousness, and attempted to indecently touch another girl. Analysis of his mobile phone and laptop revealed category A, B, and C videos and still images of indecent content involving children.

In a victim impact statement, one of the girls assaulted by Wilson described the ongoing trauma she has experienced, including insomnia, depression, and emotional struggles. "The nightmare of what you did remains fresh in my mind," she told the court. She also noted Wilson's "seemingly blasé attitude to when it came to committing sexual offences against young women."

In addition to the three-year prison term, Wilson was made subject to restraining orders against his two victims and issued with a sexual harm prevention order. The sentencing serves as a strong message that sexual violence and exploitation of minors will not be tolerated by the justice system.
