Rapist sentenced for series of sex attacks on women

A former prison officer who was found guilty of nine counts of rape and one of attempted rape of six different women has today been sentenced to a total of 28 years at Hull Crown Court.

Mark Scott, 34, formerly of Daville Close in Hull was found guilty last month of the offences which dated back to 2005 and stretched over a period of 13 years.

He must serve a custodial sentence of 20 years with an extended licence period of 8 years.

On sentencing Judge recorder Ben Nolan QC said Mark Scott had a “ingrained sense of entitlement to sex on his terms”, “a sadistic streak” is a “dangerous man” and he displayed violence towards the women while committing his crimes.
