Two paedophiles – serving lengthy sentences at a Cambridgeshire prison – died within days of each other in December. Patrick Mugford, 69, was jailed in 2022 for raping a Canterbury schoolgirl as she slept next to her new born baby.

It took 20 years for the victim to get justice after her mother refused to believe her at the time.

Mugford, originally from Cornwall, was jailed at Maidstone Crown Court in 2022 for seven and a half years for rape and indecent assault.

He died on December 17, 2023, at Hinchingbrooke Hospital after being taken there from Littlehey Prison. An inquest has since given his provisional cause of death as pneumonia.

Seven days before, on December 10, Frederick Stallwood, 89, died at Littlehey Prison of prostate cancer.

Stallwood, from Carmarthenshire, was jailed in 2017 for 18 years for historic rapes committed when he was in his 30s.

An appeal judge the following year refused to lessen his sentence.

The appeal judge said that whilst age and infirmity were factors to be taken into account, these had been balanced against the harm done to victims.

The judge said he was mindful, too, of “the concern of the public that offenders receive appropriate sentences for serious crimes”.
