Brookeborough strong man found guilty of child abuse
A convicted paedophile has had his sentence added to after he was found guilty of sexually abusing two sisters.
Former Guinness Book of Records strong man David Parkinson, 68, from Main Street, Brookeborough in County Fermanagh, is currently serving 15 years for the rape and sexual abuse of three girls aged between six and 11.
On two new charges of indecent assault and one of gross indecency, he was ordered to serve a total of 3 years 6 months consecutive to his current 15-year sentence.
Omagh Crown Court Judge Geoffrey Miller QC told the paedophile he deserved the extra jail time for fighting the case and forcing his victims to give evidence.
Parkinson indecently assaulted the elder girl between May 1993 and May 1995, before abusing her younger sister between 12 November 1998 and 13 November 2000.
Jailing him, Judge Miller described Parkinson as “a serial paedophile who, until he was unmasked back in 2006, carried out assaults on numerous children”.
“He used his personality and local celebrity as a strong man to provide cover for his vile predatory deeds, which served to destroy their innocence of childhood and wreak untold damage on his victims as they grew to adulthood,” he said.
