A Jamaican man, convicted of rape, who struck again just nine days after being freed was given a 14-year sentence in the United Kingdom (UK) yesterday.

Jermaine Hussie, was described by the judge as a 'danger to women', and sentenced to 14 years behind bars with an extended licence of four years for raping a woman with learning difficulties.

A report in the Daily Mail said the 34-year-old Jamaican had previously been given a six-year jail sentence in July 2014 for the rape and sexual assault of a woman and was released on March 20 last year.

Prosecutor David Polglase, said that eight days later Hussie approached a young mother at Birkenhead bus station and pestered her into giving him her phone number.

The next evening another young woman, who has learning difficulties, was also approached by him at the bus station and they ended up in the car park of the Wirral Christian Centre.

They engaged in consensual kissing but Hussie then raped her twice despite her objections. 

The next day she told her support worker what had happened and the police were alerted.

Liverpool Crown Court heard that the police circulated details of the attacker on Facebook and the woman he had pestered the day before the rapes contacted officers to help identify him.
