18 year old Billy Joe Craven from Chapelfields has been setenced to life imprisonment at York Crown Court.

In the early hours of New Year's Day, North Yorkshire Police were called after a woman was assaulted as she walked home.

Soon afterwards, 18 year old Billy Joe Craven was arrested and charged.

On the 3rd of April he pleaded guilty to a number of crimes - but a full count of rape was dropped on admission of a lesser charge.

He has also been disqualified from teaching children and has been placed on the sexual offenders register for life.
