Guyanese man sentenced to 62 years in prison for raping three people

In Guyana, two weeks after he pleaded guilty to raping three people, including a seven year old child, Leon Jordan was on Wednesday sentenced to 62 years in jail for the offences.
Justice Brassington Reynolds imposed the sentence on Jordan, who between June 2012 and October 2016, raped the seven year old, a 14 year old as well as a 28 year old woman.
The Court was told that in all three cases, the accused used violence before attacking his victims. 
In two of the cases he used an ice pick to threaten the victims while in the third case, he used a knife.
In statements to the Court through the probation officer, the victims all spoke about the trauma that they have been left to face for the rest of their lives.
Justice Reynolds said he could not understand how the youth who appeared quiet could have such a different side to him. 
Jordan showed no emotion as the sentences were imposed on him.
