CHILD rapist Keith John Williams waged ‘a campaign of sexual tyranny’ against his victims.
Williams was 41 in June 1999 when he was given five life sentences for five charges of rape and indecent assault against a child when she was aged between eight and 15.
His victim is now 42 and cannot be named for legal reasons.
She was subjected to thee attacks between December 1979 and December 1985 at The Dominoes Inn, in Woodville Road, Hartshorne, and The Cottage, in Church Gresley.
Williams repeatedly raped her, and invited other men to the same.
In the first attack, Williams pinned down and punched his victim, who was crying and screaming, before assaulting her.
A week later, Williams raped her and would continue to do for six years.
On one occasion, aged 11, she was raped on the pool table.
She was also assaulted with a knife, a pool cue, and a bottle.
The case only came to court after his victim broke her silence over the years of abuse when she broke her terrible secret to a friend in 1994.
Williams denied the allegations throughout the trial, at Derby Crown Court.
He also has a conviction for indecent assault on a 14-year-old girl.
At the sentencing, Judge Brian Appleby, QC, told Williams: “The girl was used and abused for your sexual gratification.
“She was submitted to a campaign of sexual tyranny. She bares the scars of your conduct and will continue to do so for the rest of her life.”
