Statement following sentence of Jordan Brokenshire

Following the sentencing of Jordan Brokenshire at Truro Crown Court today, Friday, 25 November 2011, DS Rob Youngman made the following comment:

“Jordan Brokenshire was today convicted of four separate sexual assaults against two young women who were preyed upon during the course of his employment as a taxi driver in Torbay and whilst they were vulnerable due to alcohol.

“The seven-year sentence today is welcomed by the investigating officer and those victims who were brave enough to come forward and report these serious crimes.

“Evidence of a prior sexual assault was admitted as bad character demonstrating Brokenshire’s propensity to target young vulnerable women and we would like to again thank that victim for coming forward.

“Throughout the investigation, the victims have been supported by specially-trained officers to assist with the investigation and trial that Brokenshire elected to subject them to.

“Throughout the trial, he refused to acknowledge any responsibility for his offending behaviour and, as such, the sentence given today goes some way to demonstrate the utter contempt he had for the feelings of the victims.

“I wish to stress that Brokenshire worked in isolation of other professional and responsible taxi drivers, however, i would like to take the opportunity as the festive season approaches to remind everyone to ensure you plan your trip home, whether on foot or on public or private transport.”
