A KNOWN sex offender has been jailed for 15 years for raping a three-year-old girl.

David Brant had a history of sex offences, prosecutor Michael Conry told Worcester Crown Court, but on 13 occasions had failed to tell the authorities where he was living.

He was jailed for 15 years for the attack on the girl in Malvern at Worcester Crown Court.

told by Judge Robert Juckes QC that he would have to serve nine and a half years before he could be released.

The judge added that Brant, pictured left, who must sign the sex offenders register for life, would be on licence for 15 years and in danger of recall when he is freed.

Defence counsel Andrew Hobson said Brant had led a shiftless and homeless life because of his alcoholism. He had moved several times in the West Midlands and had not deliberately targeted the Malvern family.

He had made an early guilty plea to a charge of sexual assault on the three-year-old. As a sex offender, he also admitted failing to notify the authorities of his change of address.

Mr Conry said it was the 13th time that Brant had failed to notify a new address. It was midday on March 3 when he turned up at the house in Malvern and was allowed in by a mother of three children. During the short time he was alone with the young girl he carried out the assault, later claiming she had been injured when he carried her downstairs.

The youngster was examined in hospital when the extent of her injury was revealed. But it had a profound psychological effect, Mr Conry, said making her violent towards her parents.

Mr Conry said Brant and was known as Pisshead Dave because of his drinking.had many convictions for dishonesty and in 2005 was jailed for 12 months for a sex assault on a 14-year-old girl walking home from a friends at night. When she realised she was being followed, she nipped into a telephone kiosk to contact police but Brant had assaulted her before they arrived.

Brant, who had been banned from working with children for life, was deeply ashamed of his actions, said Mr Hobson. Homelessness and alcohol had led to his offending but since he had been in prison on remand he was no longer craving for a drink.

Judge Juckes said there was no criticism of the mother for letting Brant into the house. She was merely extending the hand of friendship to a man she thought knew her husband. By committing such a “horrible” crime and his lust overcoming his inhibitions, Brant showed he was still a danger to children.

These animals are always ashamed and sorry about their actions aren't they --NO NO NO The only thing they are sorry about is the fact that they have been caught --A leopard never changes it's spots and no doubt he will carry on upon his release ---Bring back capital punishment for these sick monsters,that's the only way to protect future victims --And yes I'd pull the trigger or drop the trapdoor,no problem.

Some comfort though it appears that the general prison population don't agree with any comfort or safety for child sex offenders, so he really might wish to be anywhere than in jail.

13 failures to comply with the terms of the sex offenders register.

Therefore there are at least 13 `officials` who failed to deal with Brant correctly and are culpable in the offences against this 3 year old child.
All of them should be prosecuted and accept responsibility for the horrific consequences of their total incompetence.

As for David Brant himself,

"No-one deserves to die"................
...........really?

Why was he allowed by the childs mother into her house?

Its sad that this type of story always brings out the worst in people. A terrible crime which seems to make people advocate murder. Full life imprisonment should be standard for this danger to society.

I think the whole system needs a complete reform. Its simply failing on every count. To do what this poor excuse of a human being has done to an innocent girl is appalling,!!! So is the sentence enough? Not in my opinion no.

I myself am a parent to a 3 year old daughter, my feelings go out to the parents.

I would be grateful for an hour or 2 alone with this despicable individual, I would introduce him to the truest meaning of pain and suffering. Psychological damage would not be a concern, it would be a fact.

There's one good reason for not having capital punishment for rape and child abuse, justified though it may be, and that's that the offender is more likely to kill the victim if there's the threat of them being executed if caught. There's been a number of states in the US where they trialled capital punishment for rape, but rescinded it after more rape victims were getting murdered. As evil and life altering rape may be, the victim has a chance of recovering their standard of living - but not if they've been killed to minimise the risk of the offender getting caught and executed.

I'm all for leaving the offender in the bottom of a dark dank pit to rot out the rest of their days in misery though.

Just give me 10 minutes alone with this dirty vile creature.
Stories like this always boil my P*ss.
A pedophile can NOT be reformed through therapy, i don't care what anyone says.
It is a sexual preference, Like me, you and anyone else who has a sexual preference to be gay/straight/into rubber/into S&M... if you get off on being with a female, man... or sadly a child, no amount of therapy in the world can change that way of thinking.
He will NOT be reformed and he will always be a danger to kids everywhere.

He will be tortured by the so called moral lifers, basically any prisoner on a life sentence eg hit man, armed bank robber. Basically people with nothing to lose will provide justice.

A few child rapists have been killed like this, Huntley had his throat cut.

This one will die in jail.
