James Walmsley – Repeat Sex Offender – Gets measly 11 years for new rapes

A TAXI driver who raped and molested three women in in his cab was branded a “sexual predator” as he was locked up today.

Judge Nigel Gilmour QC told James Walmsley he had targeted his young and attractive victims as he jailed him for a total of 11 years and two months, with a three-year extended licence.

There were angry scenes before, during and following the one-hour hearing at Liverpool crown court.

Five police offices divided relatives of the victims and Walmsley’s supporters.

The 37-year-old, of Lynwood Gardens, Orrell Park, was ordered to stay silent by the judge after an angry outburst, but screamed “liars” as he was led down.

Since his unanimous conviction by the jury of two counts of rape and five of sexual assault, it has been revealed the sexual predator could have been stopped years before.

He was given a community sentence in 2000 after having sex with a 14-year-old girl in the back of his cab, but was allowed to keep his Hackney licence.

Walmsley then went on to attack the three lone women between July 2007 and June last year.

Jailing him, Judge Gilmour said: “You are and have been for some time, a sexual predator.

“You are a man with a high sexual drive who has an extremely high opinion of your own attractiveness to women.”

Walmsley admitted he had slept with an unknown number of women in the back of his cab, despite living with his partner and two children.
