Pervert Paul Telling faces jail after raping a young girl
Maidstone Crown Court,
where Telling was convicted
A pervert who raped a young girl and encouraged a boy and a man
to have sex with her is facing a jail sentence.
Paul Telling preyed on the victim by giving her alcohol and then
playing sexual card games with her. He then introduced others into
his sordid world.
The 44-year-old, formerly of Trafalgar Court, Gillingham, was
convicted of five charges of rape, two of causing or inciting a
child to engage in sexual activity, two of arranging or
facilitating the commission of a child sex offence, sexual assault
and assault by penetration.
Prosecutor Christopher May told Maidstone Crown Court the girl
eventually told police how devious Telling would get her
“completely wasted”. They would play cards and he would always win
because she was too drunk.
The card games involved taking clothes off and walking around
naked in the open. It progressed to sex acts. She did not refuse
because she did not know it was wrong.
"She was thinking it was normal, like a ritual you had to go through" – Prosecutor Christopher May
Telling introduced a
teenaged boy into the games and encouraged her to have sex with
him. Both of them had sex with her separately.
The boy introduced a friend, aged 20, to her and he had sex with
her also. Telling had full sex with the girl.
He gave her £20 to keep quiet and warned her not to tell
anybody. Mr May said it was manipulation to prevent her from
revealing the reality of what was going on.
“She was thinking it was normal, like a ritual you had to go
through,” he said. “She didn’t tell anybody. She later said it was
kind of a mental game. She was kind of twisted.
“The Crown says he took advantage of her for his own sexual
The girl eventually told her mother there were things that were
too painful to reveal. She told her father some detail.
Telling, now of Eastbourne, East Sussex, denied all the
allegations, claiming he never had sex with the girl.
The 20-year-old was arrested and cautioned for causing or
inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity.
Judge Martin Joy remanded Telling in custody and adjourned
sentence until March 22.
