Milford Haven child rapist jailed for 15 years
A Milford Haven man who raped an 11 year old girl has been jailed for 15 years.
During an earlier hearing Michael John George, aged 43, sobbed and clutched a bible as the verdict was announced.
George, of Marble Hall Close, was also banned from working with children and to register with the police as a sex offender once he has been released.
George had maintained during his trial at Swansea crown court that he had sexual intercourse with her twice, but only with her consent and only when she was 16.
George admitted that during interviews with police officers following his arrest he had denied that sex had ever taken place between them.
George frequently broke down in tears as he told the jury, I was frightened and ashamed.
It should never have happened.
Afterwards she acted as if nothing had happened.
She told me she was sixteen and I believed her.
Geraint Walters, prosecuting, accused George of telling a pack of lies and play acting in the witness box.
He said George had adopted part of the complainant s evidence to make his story sound more convincing.
The victim, now a teenager, said she had tried to fight off George but he had been too powerful.
