Teen rapist jailed indefinitely
A 'DANGEROUS' rapist who attacked a teenager has been handed an indeterminate jail term.
A RAPIST from Essex has been handed an indeterminate jail term.
Slawomir Blasiak, 43, originally from Poland, but living in Sittang Close, Colchester, was told he will only be released when no longer considered a danger to the public.
The attack on the teenage victim happened in Colchester on May 16, 2008 in the Vineyards area.
After Friday's sentencing at Southend Crown Court, Detective Inspector Jim Caulfield said: “Slawomir Blasiak is a dangerous man who took advantage of a vulnerable, young girl who was in need of help not abuse.
“The case was fully investigated by detectives from Colchester CID and thanks to their work and help from the public, Blasiak was identified. He has however denied his involvement, despite the evidence against him, and therefore forced his victim to relive her ordeal in the court room.
“Officers would like to pay tribute to the victim in this case for her courage in giving evidence against a man who clearly tried to frustrate the system by trying to delay his trial, no doubt hoping the victim would not go ahead and give evidence.
