A PAEDOPHILE serving 16 years for attacks on children has been branded a dangerous liar after his latest convictions against another schoolgirl.

George Robinson was given the prison term in 2012 for rapes and sex assaults on two girls under 10, which he denied.

At Newcastle Crown Court yesterday, the 63-year-old was given a further four years for attacks on an 11-year-old in the 1980s, which he had also denied.

Because the perverted pensioner has never accepted his guilt, his victims have had to relive their ordeals by giving evidence against him from the witness box.

Mr Recorder Jonathan Carroll told him after his latest convictions yesterday: “Throughout this trial, you have shown no remorse or regret for your behaviour towards that child. You have told lies and those lies have been supported by further, obvious lies from your wife, who no doubt was telling her lies in support of you at your instigation.

“There is no one that should leave this room without the impression that you are a serial and committed paedophile, and that children are not safe in your presence.”

The court heard the four-year jail term will not affect Robinson’s earliest release date, which is in 2019.

But the judge said that does not undermine the importance of the convictions for indecent assault and indecency with a child, which he had denied during a four-day trial this week.

He added: “The point is, the complainant has been brave enough to come forward and give evidence, she has put it on record what you have done to her.

“That has been listened to by this jury and accepted, and you stand convicted of it.

“She has been heard in public, believed, and I hope she takes considerable comfort in that.”

The victim, who cannot be named, said she felt “shock and horror” at what Robinson did to her and took years to find the courage to speak out about her ordeal.

The court heard Robinson, previously of Athol Road, Sunderland, is ill with heart problems and other complaints, which will get progressively worse during his incarceration.
