A ‘depraved and dangerous’ pimp who subjected eight women and girls to a horrific campaign of physical and sexual violence has been handed a 29-year extended sentence. During a reign of terror spanning two decades, Junior Chester Bryan got some hooked on hard drugs so they would be dependent on him and lived off the earnings of those he forced into prostitution.
Bryan subjected others to brutal rapes – both for his own gratification and to teach them a lesson – and forced one vulnerable teenager to dig her own grave after launching a vicious hammer attack.
The 63-year-old was convicted of 20 offences and admitted three more, including rape, sexual assault, false imprisonment, living on prostitution and supplying class A drugs. All occurred between 1993 and 2013 and took place in Middlesbrough, Leeds, Darlington and London. (Text and photo courtesy Metro)
