The Metropolitan Police website reports that South London rapper DVS (real name Courtney Hutchinson) has been jailed for 23 years.
Hutchinson was charged after imprisoning a 20 year old woman in his flat, where he later went on to rape, beat and torture her with a hot iron.
Hutchinson pleaded guilty to rape and false imprisonment on the second day of his trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Tuesday, 12 July. He was sentenced on Monday, 9 January and will remain on the sex offenders register for life.
Detective Sergeant Jimi Tele, from Newham police, said: “I would like to praise the bravery and determination of the victim of this truly harrowing ordeal. Her resoluteness in coming forward and working with the police in securing the imprisonment of a truly dangerous offender is worthy of the highest recognition.
“Courtney Hutchinson subjected his victim to the most shocking and repeated levels of violence. It was her determination, in company with the skill of the investigation team, that allowed the full severity of the attack to be revealed and that ultimately led to Hutchinson’s arrest and conviction.
“The level of violence he inflicted was so severe it demonstrated his total disregard for the victim as a human being, subjecting her to levels of callousness and danger that are rarely seen. The evidence against him was overwhelming but the fact that he decided to plead guilty, removing further ordeal for the victim, can only be welcomed.
“The victim and the public can be safe in knowing that Hutchinson no longer poses a risk to them as he begins a significant term of imprisonment. Finally, I would like to add that the Metropolitan Police Service is committed to pursuing those who commit violence and particularly those most dangerous offenders. I am conscious that there may be others who have suffered similar violence, whether at the hands of this offender or another, and I would urge them to approach the police.”
*Looking at all his supporters who said this was all lies/fake after Court News UK initially reported this story in July 2016.*
A prison cell is too good for deranged scum like this.
My heart goes out to the victim. I hope she is receiving all the support and love she needs.
