A Penryn window cleaner has been jailed for ten years at Truro Crown Court after being convicted of rape.
Peter Brewer was convicted by a jury this afternoon, (Monday), of two charges relating to a woman in her late 20's and one of the rape of a 14-year-old girl, between 2002 and 2011.
Brewer, who denied a total of seven charges, was acquitted of three further rapes and an indecent assault.
Judge David Ticehurst told 32-year-old Brewer, of Burnthouse, Penryn, that he had had little or no regard for his victims. An aggravating feature was that offences had been committed over a period of time.
Defence counsel Robert Linford told the court that Brewer was effectively a man of good character with a good work ethic. He had served in the Army until being discharged on medical grounds.
The Judge ordered Brewer to sign on the Sex Offenders' Register for the rest of his life.
