Man jailed for nine charges of rape, sex assault and voyeurism

A man who raped a teenager in a tent in Carmarthenshire has been jailed.

Police were called to the report in the Llandovery area in the early hours of Wednesday, 11 August 2021, when Anthony Talbot, aged 41, of Rhandirmwyn, was arrested.

His victim had raised the alarm after being raped during a terrifying ordeal.

The subsequent investigation by Dyfed-Powys Police found Talbot had carried out historical sexual assaults.

He had also secretly filmed someone in the shower, and he was also in possession of around 40 ‘up-skirting’ images.

Talbot pleaded guilty to a total of nine charges:

1. Inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity – Sentenced to six years in custody
2. Inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity – Six years in custody
3. Sexual assault on a child under 13 – Four years in custody
4. Attempt Rape of a child under 13 – Eight years in custody
5. Sexual assault – Two years in custody
6. Rape of female under 16 – Six years in custody
7. Digital Penetration of a child under 13 – 12 years in custody
8. Voyeurism (Filming a Private Act) – Six months in custody
9. Voyeurism (Up-skirting) – Four months in custody

He was sentenced to a total of 12 years in prison, extended for six years, at Swansea Crown Court on 19 November.

Detective Constable Jade Probert said: “Talbot is a predator who carried out repeated sexual assaults on a young victim, so I am pleased he has now been convicted and sentenced.

“The victim in this case has shown great courage to come forward and ensure their attacker faces justice. I commend them for their bravery throughout the investigation and court process.

“This was a complex investigation that started with a rape and lead to more historical assaults and other serious offences.

“It has taken a great deal of work by the detectives in charge of the case to get this result in a relatively short time.

“Detective Constable, Eleri Owen, and I worked tirelessly in presenting the CPS with a comprehensive and detailed file of evidence which resulted in the suspect pleading guilty to all offences.

“We both supported the victim from the beginning of the investigation, right through to the court process, ensuring that she was at the heart of our investigation.

“The victim’s mother has described the officers involved as a ‘lantern of hope’ who had ‘fought with the passion of a mother’.

“As this case shows, Dyfed-Powys Police takes sexual offences seriously and work hard to seek justice, while supporting victims through the investigation and judicial process.

“If you have been abused, you can contact us.”
