Paedophile jailed for 18 years for the rape of autistic teenage girl

A man has been jailed for 18 years after being found guilty of the rape and sexual assault of an autistic teenage girl.

Matthew Tucker is said to have raped her twice at his home in October 2019 and police also discovered a log there full of imaginary child abuse scenarios.

After the girl revealed her attacks to a friend, police arrested Tucker, from Great Barr, Birmingham a short time later.

When officers raided his home they discovered more than 2.200 screenshots of conversations between Tucker and his victim along with a log of that recorded sexual activity with children aged between 8 and 16.

The log however is believed to be imaginary as none of the children have been traceable.

Detective Inspector Joe Davenport, from West Midlands Police, said “The girl was autistic and had mental health issues… she was clearly vulnerable and we believe Tucker exploited that for his own sexual gratification.”

There were also indecent images of bestiality and children on Tucker’s computer hard drive.

Trying to defend himself Tucker told the police that the 15-year-old was the one who instigated the sexual contact. A jury at Birmingham Crown Court convicted Tucker of two counts of rape, sexual assault and possessing indecent images on 9 November. He was sentenced to 18 years in prison and will have to serve at least 12 years before being considered for parole. He has also had to sign the sex offenders register for the rest of his life. Detective Inspector Davenport said “My officers conducted a thorough investigation and supported the girl throughout the case to the conclusion at court. I wish her all the very best for the future and hope she receives all the support she needs to get through what’s been a hugely traumatic time for her. I would encourage anyone who has been a victim of a sexual offence to come forward and report the matter to us so we can take action.”
