A Walsall man has been jailed for more than 20 years after being convicted of a series of rapes against women and young girls.

Brian Guest, 65, was jailed on 23 January after being found guilty at Stafford Crown Court of rape, sexual assault and indecent assault against his victims, which included children.

The offences took place over a span of 37 years and came to light when a complaint was made against Guest in October 2022, leading to an investigation. Several complainants bravely came forward and reported him for rape and sexual assaults, which took place in a number of different settings, West Midlands Police revealed.

Police arrested and charged Guest and, following trial, he was found guilty at Wolverhampton Crown Court in June last year, and has now been sentenced at Stafford Crown Court to 22 years in prison.

Detective Sergeant Nadia Cooper, from the West Midlands Police Investigations team, said: “This was an appalling sequence of abuse in which Brian Guest abused his victims.

“Thanks to their bravery, we were able to build a case to bring him to justice and hopefully grant them some measure of closure.

“We would urge anyone who knows or thinks they were a victim of sexual abuse in the past to contact us and tell us your story.

“In doing so you could secure justice for yourself and others, as well as potentially protecting current or future victims.”

Police also urged anyone who has been abused, or think they know someone who is being abused, go to their Child Sexual Abuse advice webpage to find out more about their options.
