Rapist cleared of attack on teen left with ‘worst sex injuries doc had seen’

A serial rapist was cleared of an attack on a 14-year-old girl who was left with horrific injuries, it has emerged.

Sick Steven Stalley was convicted of raping three women and stalking nine others in a shocking campaign.

A court heard the chilling testimony from his victims, which included Stalley, 31, telling one rape victim "you'll enjoy it eventually".

He threatened to slit one victim's throat and throttled another, telling her she was going to die, while he hid in another victim's home and raped her after tying her dog to a radiator.

Details of his vile campaign emerged at the Glasgow High Court as a jury found him guilty of raping three victims and sexually assaulting another between March 2007 and March 2018.

He was also convicted of stalking nine more victims after forcing them to give him their mobile phone numbers after he met them briefly on buses or in the street.

The court heard that in May 2014 Stalley, from Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland, walked free from court over sex with a 14-year-old girl.

She told the jury she asked him to stop, but he refused and continued.

Dr Deborah Wardle, a medical consultant for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, examined the young girl after the alleged rape and said her injuries were among the worst she had ever seen.

Stalley was cleared after telling a jury he thought she was 16. After being cleared of the offence, Stalley went on to try to groom another 14-year-old on Facebook.

He bombarded her with messages, telling her she looked "about 18", was "bloody beautiful"," and had "sexy legs".

After inundating the girl, who can't be named for legal reasons, with the unwanted messages, Stalley, was made the subject of a Risk of Sexual Harm Order, after Police Scotland requested it to protect the public.

Judge Tom Hughes blasted Stalley for making the lives of his victims a misery.

He said: "You approached young women when they were alone and forced them to give you their phone numbers.

"You persisted in making their lives a misery. They had to block your number and change their lifestyles.

"They were genuinely living in fear."

Stalley will be sentenced next month.
