Murder, paedophilia and domestic abuse. Some of the county’s lowest characters have committed unthinkable crimes.

These criminals were locked up over last the few weeks for some of the most shocking offences - preying on women and children in their communities and further afield.

Take a look at the list below to read about some of their awful offences.

Callum Leslie:

Bucks Free Press:

The man who raped a woman in her own home and covered her face with a pillow to mask her screams was jailed for five years and ten months in November.

Callum Leslie, 28, of Prebnedal Avenue in Aylesbury, sexually assaulted his victim after meeting her at the Mirage nightclub in the town centre.

During what was at first a consensual sexual encounter, Leslie started to inflict pain on his victim, and when she told him to stop he refused. As he began hurting her more, she started screaming, and Aylesbury Crown Court heard how he covered her face with a pillow to drown out the noise.

A jury found Leslie guilty of rape, and he had also pleaded guilty to several charges of possessing indecent images of children after police found thousands of sexual pictures on his phone and computer.

Sentencing, Judge Geoffrey Payne said: “She was entitled to expect that you would stop when she asked you to stop, but you carried on regardless and covered up her face when she called for help.”

He then wrapped her in a duvet and bin liners and attempted to hide her in his garage, where police found her some time later after he called them and confessed his crime.

Despite telling police he was responsible, Gil later pleaded not guilty to her murder at Luton Crown Court, but the jury found him guilty and he was sentenced in November.

Between 2017 and 2019, fuelled by drugs and alcohol, Stewart threatened, intimidated and emotionally abused a woman he was in a relationship with.

The 42-year-old, of Yew Tree Close, was sentenced to two years in prison and given a restraining order after he admitted to charges of criminal damage and controlling and coercive behaviour.

Aylesbury Crown Court heard how Stewart used physical violence against his victim, which included hitting her with a crutch, biting her, slapping her, grabbing her face, and putting his arm around her throat. Some of the abuse even happened after the victim had separated from her tormentor.

After he was reported in April 2019, Stewart was arrested and later charged in November. He was sentenced in November this year after admitting his crimes.

Zachariah Kotlarz:

Bucks Free Press:

This High Wycombe man has been jailed for raping a woman who was 20 years old.

Zachariah Kotlarz, 28, of Brambleside, Loudwater was convicted by a unanimous jury after he was charged in June 2020.

The 28-year-old was sentenced to six years in prison and ordered to sign the sex offenders' register for life at the end of November.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Lynda Stearman, of Milton Keynes CID, said: “I would like to pay tribute to the victim for coming forward and speaking out against her abuser and giving evidence that led to his conviction.

“I hope that this case shows that time should be no barrier for offenders to be brought to justice when they sexually abuse others.”
