A VIOLENT rapist from Poole has been locked up for nine years for battering, raping and falsely imprisoning two women.

Poole man Jermaine Kraftner, 27, of Poole Road, Branksome, and cousin Corrie Pinney, 35, took it in turns to rape the women in two separate attacks at Pinney’s London flat.

Sentencing the pair at Croydon Crown Court, Recorder of Croydon judge Warwick McKinnon, said: “I can’t predict if ever it will be safe for you to be let out of prison.

“You both launched a series of horrendous attacks... the attacks were designed to degrade and instil terror for your own power and sexual gratification.”

He said the attacks were utterly depraved and the two rapists had shown no remorse at all.

Their first victim, a 17-year-old, was lured back to the flat after a date with Pinney in July 2009.

When she refused sex, they pinned her down and raped her.

During the second attack in April last year, the cousins subjected a 22-year-old woman to a “degrading and humiliating” five-hour ordeal, torturing her and making threats of sadistic violence.

They threatened to cut off her hair, douse her in boiling water or stab her with a Samurai sword.

After an evening of drinking and smoking cannabis at the flat in Sutton, Kraftner, known to friends as “Striker” and “J”, flew into a jealous rage at around midnight, the court heard.

The woman was made to stand on one leg in the corner of the room, as the men began to humiliate and attack her, the jury was told in June.

In June, they were convicted on 14 counts of false imprisonment, sexual assault and one ABH charge each, following a trial.

Pinney was convicted on four rape charges and one of attempted rape and was also jailed for nine years.
