Man groomed teen and subjected her to a gang rape to pay off his drugs debt

Rapist Daniel Kilbee is already serving one life sentence for a horrific string of sex crimes spanning 18 years including the abuse of a two-year-old

A depraved predator already serving life for raping a two-year-old has been sentenced to a further life term after he was found guilty of sexually abusing a teenager.

Daniel Kilbee, 38, was yesterday convicted of grooming a schoolgirl before subjecting her to a gang rape to pay off his drugs debt.

Kilbee, who refused to leave his prison cell to receive his life term, was told by a judge it was likely he would never be released and would spend the rest of his life behind bars.

In 2016, Kilbee was given a life sentence with a minimum term of ten years for 30 sexual crimes against six victims between 1997 and 2015 including the rape of a two-year-old girl which he filmed.

He had denied raping the school girl with another man, telling jurors he was “gobsmacked” when he first learnt of the allegations.

A judge at Oxford Crown Court said that because of the seriousness of Kilbee’s latest set of offences he would take the ‘rare’ course and order a consecutive life term.

Judge Peter Ross said: “This was an appalling incident and a series of the most dreadful sexual offences.

“It was undoubtedly planned by Kilbee, it involved simultaneous offending by two men and with additional degradation and humiliation.

It was an incident which was sustained over a period of time and there was significant distress.”

Kilbee had denied four counts of rape, one of assault by penetration and another of sexual assault but jurors found him unanimously guilty on all counts in June.

Throughout the trial jurors were told that Kilbee had exploited his victim before carrying out the gang rape, together with another unidentified man, at a house in Oxford in 2011 or 2012.

On the day of the incident the teenager – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was driven by Kilbee to an address.

While there, prosecutors said, she was subjected to rapes involving an unidentified black male and Kilbee.

She was forced to perform a sex act, before both men took turns to rape her, and then with both men raping her at the same time.

The abuse was meted out in order to pay off a drugs debt.

After the ordeal she was then threatened and told not to tell anybody what had happened before Kilbee again groped her while at his home.

At Kilbee’s sentencing hearing yesterday the victim bravely took to the witness box to read out to the court how the incident had affected her.

She said: “At the time I felt threatened by him and believed that as he was […] an adult I would not be believed.

“I felt ashamed and disgusted by the actions of him and I was some how responsible for the actions of an adult.

“At the time as a child I felt he must know right from wrong but now I know very differently.”

Defending Kilbee, Allen Wellington shared details of his past as a way of explanation for his actions.

He said: “Mr Kilbee had a significant head injury during a motorcross accident in 2000 suffering frontal lobe damage.

His mother suffered from personality disorder and she was an alcoholic.

“In a psychological report, it stated that he had been emotionally abused throughout his childhood which resulted in bed wetting until the age of six or seven and he suffered physical abuse from his father.

“He also had a significant cannabis habit smoking 20 joints a day at one point.”

Interrupting the defence counsel, Judge Peter Ross battled the claim that this explained his actions. He said: “You said this explains his offending but this does not explain his offending at all.”

Sentencing him, Judge Ross said: “In November 2016 this defendant on an indictment which revealed the most appalling conduct, the details of which are already in the public domain.
