Darryl Williams Redcar – Sexual Offender Son Of Cop
A teenager could be locked up after he admitted a string of sexual offences against five girls.
Darryl Williams, 19, pleaded guilty to six child sex offences.
He was under 18 when he committed some of the offences against the underage girls. In one case, he was only 14.
He was due to stand trial at Newcastle Crown Court yesterday.
No trial took place as he entered guilty pleas to two charges after hours of discussions behind the scenes.
He admitted sexual activity with two girls, both several years younger than him.
At a previous hearing, he had pleaded guilty to four more charges covering three other girls.
They were sexual assault, sexual activity with a child and two counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.
The crimes spanned a three-year period when Williams was aged between 14 and 18.
Nigel Soppitt, defending, said: “There’s no suggestion there’s been any luring.
“He’s come back from abroad to answer these charges.”
He said Williams, of Windsor Road, Redcar, was not in a position of power, had no previous convictions and was of “positive good character”.
Prosecutor Rosalind Scott Bell said: “The defendant has now accepted criminal offences in respect of each of the complainants in the case.”
She said Williams and one of the girls had texted each other.
“She described it as pestering, he was pestering her,” Ms Scott Bell told the court.
“She then described giving in and going in a car with him.”
She said the girl “acquiesced with a degree of pressure”.
She added: “There was always an imbalance of power.
“I wouldn’t at all put them on an even footing.
“There was a degree of abuse of power.”
For one of the offences, sentencing guidelines suggested custodial terms between three and seven years.
The judge, Recorder Martin Bethel QC, told Williams: “I’m very glad that you’ve taken this course and managed thereby to avoid any of these girls having to give evidence in a trial.
“You will in due course be given appropriate credit for your pleas of guilty.”
He adjourned sentencing until April 3 and bailed Williams with conditions not to approach the victims.
He added: “I’m not making you any promises as to what the sentence ultimately will be.
“That will be a matter for the judge who deals with you on April 3.
“These are serious matters. All sentences will be available, including depriving you of your liberty if that’s felt to be appropriate.”
Update: In 2014, his father, a top cop, was suspended.
