Two brothers have been jailed for a catalog of horrific crimes – including the rape of a child.

Andrew Clark, 38, and younger brother Jason Clark, 35 were found guilty of a series of horrific sexual assaults on children last year after committing sexual assaults a 25-year period.

The disgraced pair, from Bilborough, Nottinghamshire, returned to court to be sentenced, where Andrew Clark was found guilty of a string of offenses after preying on six vulnerable children.

He was told by Judge Mark Watson his offenses were on multiple victims over a protracted period, and could only be described as “abhorrent and cruel”, Nottinghamshire Live reports.

His total sentence was 22-and-a-half years in custody, with a one-year extension on his license period when he is released. He will be subject to the constraints of a sexual harm prevention order and to signing the sex offenders’ register.

Jason Clark, a father-of-seven, was convicted of four counts of indecent assault of a female under 14 and two counts of rape on a female under 16. The brothers were also found guilty of jointly raping a child under 16 on two occasions .

Jason Clark received 10 years in prison in total of which he will serve half and the rest on license on release. The judge said his offending him stopped as he moved into adulthood.

Detective Constable Ruth Statham, of Nottinghamshire Police, who has led the investigation, said: “I firstly want to express my thanks to the many victims of these horrific crimes for their bravery in speaking out.

“Their bravery cannot be underestimated and victims who had previously feared speaking out and not felt believed have stood up so selflessly to be cross-examined and take part in this trial to help put a stop to others suffering at the same hands.

“I hope it sends a very strong message to everyone that even though some of the allegations are of age that we will always do everything in our power to bring the offenders to justice – and that no matter how old the offenses are no one can outrun their past and their crimes will catch up with them.

“The crimes that were committed by both Andrew and Jason are unspeakable and I can only hope that their convictions will help bring a little peace and closure to their victims.

“This was an incredibly detailed investigation and a lengthy trial but I would like to thank the hard work and commitment of the Crown Prosecution lawyer Anne McCarroll and prosecutor Sally Hobson for their dedication to this case.

“I hope that both Andrew and Jason will now realize that they could never get away with such disgusting crimes and that their inevitable time behind bars will give them a chance to reflect on the cruelty and emotional turmoil they have caused their victims.”
