WINSKILL: RAPIST FACES LIFE SENTENCE


HILLINGDON

A rapist who preyed on young girls in care after plying them with drugs is facing an indefinite jail sentence.

Jamie Winskill, 25, would 'move in' on young teenagers and chat them up before brutally attacking them for his 'sexual satisfaction'.

The victims, who he knew were underage, lived in a care home in Hillingdon, west London.

One 15-year-old who had already engaged in sexual activity with Winskill went to a party at a flat owned by Winskill's cousin in (14) Archie Close, West Drayton.

Mattresses were laid out in the loft and the defendant regularly used it as a crash pad.

A second teenage girl, who also attended the party, was raped that night after Winskill took her into a flat next door, held her onto the floor and forced himself on her.
