An evil Canterbury man who subjected young girls to an ordeal of rape and debauchery has been jailed for 18 years.
Bully Jason Etheridge even threatened to dowse one victim in petrol and set her alight.
Judge Adele Williams told the 43-year-old: "You are a bully. You used violence, threats, intimidation, bribery and indoctrination.
"Your first victim was a teenager when you made her submit to your degrading sexual demands, including rape."
Etheridge, of Suffolk Road, had been convicted of seven sexual offences against young girls. He had denied them all.
The court heard one victim would explain Etheridge's perverted lust was "because she was beautiful".
Jailing Etheridge, the judge extended his licence by another three years. He will have to serve at least 12 years before considered for parole.
But the judge ruled he still posed a danger to the public and would only be released back into the community when the parole board ruled it was safe.
Etheridge will stay on the sex offenders' register for life.
He had appeared in court 30 previous times and been convicted for 158 previous offences, none of them sexual.
