A detective has spoken of the “emotional and psychological trauma” suffered by two children 20 years ago at the hands of a Peterborough paedophile and his ex-partner’s mother. Det Con Annette Renwick was speaking after Robert Wiles, who began sexually abusing a girl nearly 20 years ago – and continued doing so for the next five years – was jailed for 20 years.

Wiles, 50, carried out the sexual assaults in Peterborough between December 2004 and September 2009.

A boy was also ill-treated by Wiles and his ex-partner’s mother, Pauline Carr, 72.

His offending came to light in December 2018 when the first victim called police to report the abuse.

On March 25, at Peterborough Crown Court, Wiles, of Bringhurst, Orton Goldhay, Peterborough was found guilty of two counts of assaulting a child by touching, three counts of assaulting a child by penetration, five counts of raping a child and one count of ill-treatment of a child.

Carr, of Wildlake, Orton Malborne, was jailed for two years and three months, having been found guilty of ill-treatment of a child.

DC Renwick said: “Robert Wiles shamefully took advantage of a vulnerable child to sexually abuse her so I am delighted he is behind bars for many years to come.

“Pauline Carr displayed despicable behaviour towards a child and caused suffering no child should endure.

“Each victim has suffered a great deal of emotional and psychological trauma as a result of the abuse they have been subjected to.

“They have both shown great courage and strength to come forward with their complaints to support police with a prosecution and then appear in court to give evidence.

“Their bravery is admirable, and I hope this sentencing can bring them and their families some sense of closure.”
