Vile child rapist who groomed two young boys has been jailed for 21 years

A vile child rapist who groomed two young boys has been jailed for 21 years after a West Midlands Police investigation.

Barry Ragg, 58, was arrested after the two boys aged, 10 and 11, were brave enough to speak out about the abuse they had been subjected to.

In June this year, a jury found Ragg guilty of 23 counts of sexual assault and rape of a child under the age of 13.

Detectives searched Ragg’s home in Birmingham and discovered his computer had indecent images and videos of children.

Yesterday, he was jailed for 21 years and given an extended licence for four years.
