A child molester has been jailed for 19 years after he was convicted of a string of sexual offences.
Enrico Thor Korsche, 57, of no fixed address, was imprisoned by a judge at Maidstone Crown Court on 16 September after he was found guilty of three offences of rape, six counts of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child.
The offences took place in Swanscombe between 1999 and 2006. Korsche targeted two young girls, one who was just two years old when the abuse began, and repeatedly assaulted them.
His crimes only came to light in 2011 when one of the victims confided in her teaching assistant that she thought she had been abused when she was younger.
During the investigation into these offences, the second victim came forward and said she too was abused by Korsche. However, Korsche had fled the county and police forces around the UK were put on alert.
Korsche was arrested in Aberdeenshire in October 2013 after local officers were made aware that a man was walking along a dual carriageway. When he gave his name to patrols, it triggered an alert on the national database that he was wanted for serious sexual offences
A sex offender who preyed on children at a swimming pool has been sentenced to four years in prison.
In June 2013, 23 year-old Matthew Woodgate, previously of Maidstone, was sentenced to two years in prison for breaching a sexual offences prevention order that had been previously been placed against him by engaging in sexualised conversations with young boys who were using the Stour Leisure Centre in Ashford.
As part of the investigation into Woodgate police seized his computer and discovered images that had been saved in a sophisticated manner to avoid them being easily found.
Amongst the indecent images of children that were found, detectives located a picture that had been taken using the same camera that officers had seized from Woodgate. Through further investigation as Woodgate served his prison sentence, officers were able to positively identify the boy within the image and trace him.
Officers uncovered that Woodgate had met the boy at the swimming pool and that was where he had taken some of the photos on his computer. On one occasion, Woodgate took the boy, leaving his father searching the area concerned that his son had been abducted, but they later reappeared in the changing room area.
Woodgate was charged with offences of making, taking, possessing and possession to distribute indecent images of children. He was also charged with causing a child to engage in sexual activity and abduction.
Having been charged, Woodgate was sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on 5 September to four years in prison after pleading guilty each offence, with the exception of making indecent images of children.
