32-year-old David Joseph McMullan had pleaded guilty to four counts of rape of a child under 16. On Friday, he was sentenced to 19 years behind bars as well as handed a sexual harm prevention order for life.


McMullan, of Demesne View, Downpatrick, County Down, was arrested in Northern Ireland in March this year and was charged with multiple offences that took place in Wirral, Merseyside, between 2019 and 2021.


The investigation began when the young girl reported to police that McMullan had groomed her before raping her.



Detective Constable Jennifer Davies, the lead investigator on the case, said: "First and foremost, I'd like to highlight the strength of the victim, both in coming forward to report McMullan's heinous crimes and then throughout an arduous judicial process.


"Her determination and bravery has ensured that McMullan will now serve a significant time behind bars.


"No sentence can repair the devastating damage that McMullan's abuse has caused and continues to cause to the life of his victim. But we hope that by seeing him face justice today will allow her some form of closure and begin to move on with her life in the knowledge that he cannot harm anybody else".
