Rapist jailed in WA for abusing young girl

A man who recorded himself repeatedly sexually abusing a five-year-old girl over a period of six months, and was only caught when police arrested him for a drug offence, has been jailed for 13-and-a-half years.

Andrew Clive Willmot, 52, pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual conduct with a child and producing child exploitation material between 2016 and 2017, and possessing child porn in February last year.

He was sentenced in the WA District Court this week and must serve at least 11-and-a-half years behind bars before he can be eligible for parole.
