Sexual predator jailed after police investigation into child abuse

A twisted and depraved paedophile from Willenhall has been jailed for sexually assaulting two schoolgirls for almost a decade.

Dale Fellows, of Rosehill Gardens, preyed on the young girls in a series of attacks between 2016 and 2017.

West Midlands Police has praised the courage of the victims in coming forward and reporting the crimes committed by the 34-year-old which spanned almost 10 years.

The girls – who were both aged under 13 when they were abused – bravely recalled their experiences to specialist cops from the force’s public protection unit.

Officers were then able to build up evidence to charge Fellows who was convicted of 12 offences which included rape, sexual assaults and attempted rape between 2016 and 2017 , against one of the girls.

Fellows was also found guilty of three charges against the other victim between 2008 and 2015 and jailed for 18 years.

He was given a lengthy prison sentence at Wolverhampton Crown Court last Monday and placed on the Sex Offender Register for life.
