A paedophile from Barking has been jailed for sexual offences against three girls spanning almost 10 years.
Rupert Deeble, 51, of Margaret Bondfield Avenue, was convicted of two counts of raping a child under the age of 13, three counts of assault by penetration, four counts of sexual activity with a child and of causing a child to watch a sexual act.
He was arrested last March and found guilty on May 4 this year.
Yesterday at Snaresbrook Crown Court he was jailed for 23 years.
The judge said Deeble should be classified as a dangerous offender.
