Bradford man's child rape sentence appeal rejected

A PERVERT who was jailed for 12 years for the horrific rape of a young girl in a Bradford bedsit has seen his appeal against the sentence thrown out by top judges.

Ronald Twite, 61, later of Morley Street, Goole, raped the girl, who was only 11 or 12, in his room in the Leeds Road area of the city more than 30 years ago.


But the attack did not come to light until 2015 when the now adult woman went to police to tell them of the attack, which she said “robbed” her of her youth.

Twite was convicted last September at Bradford Crown Court of rape and jailed for 12 years, with another year on extended licence.


Claiming he had been too harshly punished, he today took his case to London’s Court of Appeal in a bid for a reduced jail term.

But three senior judges rejected his complaint, which they said was “unarguable”.

Judge Peter Collier QC, sitting with Lord Justice Hickinbottom and Mr Justice Green, referred to the “devastating” impact of the attack on the woman.

In a statement put forward at the crown court, she wrote of feeling as though she had been robbed of her youth by Twite.
