Sadistic Man, 28 Jailed for Repeated Sexual Abuse; Women Forced to Quit Work and Sever Ties with Families
Byline: Suzanne Evans
A SADISTIC bodybuilder who charmed women before manipulating them into sexual submission has been jailed indefinitely.
Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court was told 28-year-old Nigel Dunn, of Pant-y-Cerdin was a manipulative, paranoid, controlling jealous man who turned women into shadows of their former selves.
Once bubbly, outgoing and social women who held down responsible jobs were systematically sexually and physically abused by Dunn.
He forced them to give up their lives and to quit work, making them break all ties with their past by cutting up their clothes and forcing them to sever family ties.
He made one of his victims shave off her hair and mutilated another with a carving knife.
Dunn faced a 17-count indictment and admitted five of the charges against four different women between January 1, 2001 and January 10, 2010, consisting of rape, anal rape, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
Dunn later applied to vacate the guilty pleas but his application was refused.
His victims from the Pontypridd and Rhondda areas were in court to see their attacker being given an indeterminate sentence for public protection.
The investigative work carried out by DC Erica Ray in tracking down all the victims was publicly acknowledged at court by the sentencing judge in helping to bring the case to court.
Dunn will have to serve a minimum of six years before being eligible to apply for parole, and the judge added that the greatest degree of care and caution should be used in the decision regarding his release.
Dunn was also ordered to sign as a sex offender indefinitely and banned from working with children. …
