A CLIPSTONE man has been jailed for 20 years for raping three young girls.

Robert Oldham (53), of Greendale Crescent, pleaded guilty to 16 counts, including nine of rape.

Nottingham Crown Court was told the offences took place over a period of 12 years.

In sentencing Oldham, Judge John Milmo said: “I have only rarely come across such a catalogue of depravity.”

Oldham’s wife Rita (51), of the same address, was jailed for six years.

She admitted assisting her husband in one of the rapes and also admitted indecent assault on the same occasion.

Two of three victims were in court to hear the sentences.
