A FORMER baker ­— convicted of molesting two girls in East Lancashire ­— has now been jailed for nine years on further abuse charges in Jersey.

Robert Carrel, 63, served a 12-year jail term after he targeted a seven-year-old and an 11-year-old while living in Belgrave Road, Colne.

The seven-year-old was asked to mimic the on-screen actions of a porn film, in return for sweets, a hearing at Burnley Crown Court was told.

And Carrel, who was convicted of rape and a number of child indecency offences in 2010, also involved the 11-year-old in sex acts, the court heard.

Appeal court judges even later ruled the sentence imposed on Carrel, who suffered a massive heart attack while on remand, could not be considered “manifestly excessive”

Following his release, the 63-year-old was questioned regarding separate alleged offences involving another young girl in Jersey 30 years ago.

State police brought him back to the Channel Islands for trial and he was convicted for a second time at Jersey’s Royal Court.

His latest victim told how, when she was not even 10, Carrel had taken her to his flat and forced her to touch him sexually, in exchange for sweets and presents.

Giving evidence she specifically recalled receiving a ‘teddy bear with a red love heart’ from the man.

She told the court: “My life was ruined from that. I wasn’t safe any more. He took my innocence.”

One of the girls Carrel abused in East Lancashire was also called to give evidence during the Jersey trial.

Carrel was found guilty of three offences of procuring an act of gross indecency and one charge of indecent assault at trial.

Speaking after the case, Det Insp Cathy Davison, of the States of Jersey Police said officers would work tirelessly to bring perpetrators to justice, regardless of how long ago the offences took place.

She added: “This victim has shown great strength and immense courage throughout this long investigation, she has been supported throughout by a specially trained sexual offence liaison officer and will receive any further support that is required.”
