Man Who Sexually Abused Mentally Challenged Teen Released by Court of Appeal


A man convicted of sexual crimes against a mentally challenged 14-year-old girl was released from prison today.

Simon Davis was serving a total of 20 years’ imprisonment after he was found guilty of eight counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and one count of buggery on the teenager.

Davis was convicted in 2012 for the incidents which occurred two years prior.

The trial judge imposed a penalty of eight years imprisonment on each count of the unlawful sexual intercourse and 12 years on the buggery charge.

While the sentences for the counts of unlawful sexual intercourse were ordered to run concurrently the sentence for the buggery conviction was ordered to run consecutively.

The Court of Appeal quashed the buggery charge, since lawyers agreed the judge had erred as he gave a direction to the jurors in relation to that charge.

Since Davis has already served his time for the other offences his sentence was varied to time served.

  1. They need to release those young men/boys who are in prison for marijuana weed instead and leave these rapist in prison. Our prison are filled with young men for marijuana charges and conviction.

    If there is enough evidence that he had committed the sexual crime against the mentally challenged 14-year-old girl, then the child needs justice.
