Man sentenced to nine years for rape of teenager

A man who betrayed his friend’s trust and violated her teenage daughter, and threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the sexual assault, was yesterday sentenced to nine years in prison.

George Storr, 39, was on March 17 convicted of unlawful sexual intercourse and threats of death following a trial before Justice Deborah Fraser.

According to the prosecution’s case, Storr was known to the victim’s family.  

He visited the victim’s mother at her home around 8 p.m. on November 13, 2020.

The mother was about to cook, however, Storr offered to buy them food.

The mother allowed her 15-year-old daughter to accompany Storr to a nearby restaurant that they patronized regularly.

However, Storr passed the restaurant and said he was going somewhere cheaper. He took the teenager to an abandoned building.

The frightened teen ran and fell, prompting Storr to drag her into the building by her hair. Before he raped her, Storr threatened the child that he would kill her if she told her mother.

The girl fled the building as Storr searched for her shoes. She ran straight home to her mother and told her what had happened.

The mother testified that she became concerned when her daughter and Storr didn’t return home.

As a result, she went in search of them and learned that they never went to the restaurant.

When her daughter arrived home, she described her as disheveled and frantic. Her daughter told her Storr had raped her and the matter was reported to the police.

Storr did not testify, nor did he call witnesses in his defense.

Acting Deputy DPP Cordell Frazier and Karine MacVean prosecuted. Miranda Adderley represented Storr.
