Daniel Maughan was 29 years old.
Rape of the Teenage Girl
He, 29, of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for raping a teenage girl while she slept at a friend’s house in 2018. Fellow students mocked her, shouting “abortion” in her face as she finished the pregnancy. Initially, the young man was too scared to tell police how 29-year-old Daniel Magan forced himself on him during a sleepover.
She only agreed to make a statement after discovering she was two months pregnant by Maughan and after she made the heartbreaking decision to have a termination.
But news of the procedure swept around her school and she was mocked in the playground over the abortion and was branded a ”liar” over who the father of the unborn child was.
Maughan himself also falsely blamed the pregnancy on the girl having an ‘older boyfriend’ and initially denied fathering the child – even when damning DNA tests proved otherwise.
In Manchester’s Manshol Street Crown Court, a serious statement from Maugen, a driver from Headwood near Rochdale, outlined the girl’s shocking condition and sentenced her to 13 years in prison.
At Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, the girl’s shocking ordeal was outlined in a harrowing statement as driver Maughan, from Heywood, near Rochdale was jailed for 13 years.
”When it first happened I was scared and did not want to tell anyone about it,” she told police: ”I felt different the next morning and felt dirty and anxious but I tried to ignore what happened and felt I could not tell anyone.
”Then when I didn’t have a period over December I got a feeling I was pregnant. I am still scared I will see him and still can’t quite come to terms with the reality of what happened.
“He put me through hell having to have an abortion and then denied everything making me look cheap. I have been called a liar by his family and have had ‘abortion’ screamed in my face at school.
”I felt I could not bond with my younger brother because it just gave me flashbacks to the abortion.
“No teenager deserves this and he has destroyed my life- things can only get better from here.”
The rape occurred in November 2018 when the girl was invited for a sleepover at a house where Maughan was staying.
Prosecutor Brendan O’Leary said: ‘’She had been to see the Christmas lights being turned on and the victim later fell asleep on the sofa with a headache. The defendant then started touching her, lifting her bra and trying to touch her breasts.
”He then put his hand in her pants and the victim describes feeling ‘practically all of him touching me’ and felt sick. She felt she could not tell him to stop.
“He then pulled her pajama bottoms down and started having sex with her. She said it was painful inside and outside. She continued to feel pain the next morning.
“Afterwards the defendant got up and went towards the kitchen and toilet. She tried to get to sleep and the defendant came back into the room.
“The victim spoke to a friend later that day and they told her to tell someone- but she said nothing.
“She told another friend about it after missing her period and in January 2019 she wasn’t feeling well. She told her mother she had been missing her period since November and told her about what had happened.
”Her mother spoke to other family members and police were called later that evening. The victim took a pregnancy test which came back positive and had to have an abortion on 18 January. DNA confirmed the defendant was the father.
“When interviewed by police the defendant said the allegations were a ‘load of lies’ and claimed his victim had an older boyfriend.
”When interviewed again after the DNA results were put to him he continued to deny the offending. The prosecution says this involved severe psychological harm to the victim.”
Maughan admitted rape and assault. He was also ordered to sign the Sex Offender Register for life and will have to abide by the terms of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
In mitigation, his lawyer Michael Lavery said: “A report on him makes for unhappy reading but he did plead guilty. He may have some mental health problems- although a psychiatric report did not confirm this.
“He has always worked and had a job before arrest which he lost when he was charged. He has since done voluntary work as a driver.
