David Fuge, a violent male transvestite, was convicted of rape, three sexual assaults now categorised as rape, two counts of indecency with a child and 12 counts of indecent assault in July 2017.

Fuge, 69, was sentenced to 17 years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court and the judge imposed an extra year’s licence as he is classed as a person of particular concern. Fuge  was also ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life.

The court heard that Fuge had ‘a fetish for cross-dressing’ and ‘deeply serious and violent sexual behaviour’. He wore women’s clothing (dresses and lingerie) when he repeatedly sexually abused his female victim from the age of eight to 19. In addition to raping and sexual assaulting her, he also gagged her, photographed her naked, made her view pornography, beat her and on one occasion tied a belt around her neck and left her hanging from a hook.

Fuge’s victim was described as being ‘filled with nervous dread’ and told the court ‘I would just like him to take responsibility for what he did and say sorry. I hope he will come to realise what he did was wrong and has damaged me’.

Showing no remorse, Fuge turned and waved to supporters in the public gallery when he was sent down. He was reportedly a senior member of the Jehovah’s Witness community.
