A Sydenham man who raped the same victim on a number of separate occasions has been jailed for 13 years.

Julian Burke, 30, of Church Rise, was found guilty at Woolwich Crown Court yesterday (July 23) of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

The offences took place between late September last year and January 11 this year, when Burke was arrested.

Detective Inspector Neal Burton, of the Met Police’s sexual offences command, said: "It took courage and determination for the victim to report these offences to police.

"She has been supported throughout the process by specially trained officers and has now seen her attacker convicted.

"I encourage victims of sexual offences to report the incidents to police."

Also, I doubt if they would ever read this; but I would just like to say on the off chance if they do- GOD BLESS AND THANK YOU to those twelve jurors who potentially saved me and my Daughter's lives, I cannot thank you all enough. I know how challenging that trial was. It is highly unlikely I will ever see any of you again, nor probably recognise you. But the impact you have made on my life, my innocent baby girl's future; I cannot even put into words. God Bless you all, that is all I have to say. Thank you SOOO, sooo MUCH!!!!!!! Lots of Love To You All, This Will NEVER Be Forgotten XxXxXxX
