A man has been jailed for over 20 years after being convicted of multiple counts of rape.
Alan Mackey, 37, Croydon, was convicted following a trial at Kingston Crown Court which concluded on Friday, 13 December 2019.
He was sentenced to 23 years in prison at the same court on Thursday, 30 January.
The victim told police she had endured a prolonged assault at Mackey’s hands, as she was held against her will. During this time, she was raped and subjected to a physical assault, which left her with facial injuriesP
Detective Inspector Laura Semple, from the Met’s South West Safeguarding team, said:
“Mackey subjected the victim in this case to a horrific and prolonged assault and he has rightly been sentenced to a significant time behind bars.
“He is clearly a dangerous offender and we are pleased he will not be able to cause this kind of harm to any other women.
“We hope this sentencing encourages any others subject to this kind of offending to come forward and report it to police.”
Following the verdict, the victim said: “This whole process has had a severely detrimental effect on both my life and that of my family.
“I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and could not have got through the process without the help and incredible support of all police involved, particularly PC Vivian Sutton and Detective Constable Siobhan Dodge who have been with me through every step of this journey.
“I can now look forward to the future and try and put this all behind me.”
