A teenage sex offender who abused seven girls has been jailed for 10 years.

Archie Collicutt, of Wilcote Riding, Finstock, Oxfordshire, admitted rape, two counts of sexual assault, two counts of sexual activity with a child and attempted rape.

The offences were against six girls aged 12 to 17 years old in 2013.

The 18-year-old also admitted raping a 12-year-old girl in 2012. He was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court by Judge Gordon Risius.

Collicutt said he would kill the 12-year-old and her family if she were to tell anyone about the rape.

Judge Risius branded Collicutt "dangerous" and said: "It is impossible to predict the long term consequences.

"They have enough to deal with being teenagers without having to fend off sexual predators like you.

"You showed selfish determination to obtain sexual gratification and have showed no empathy for the victims. Indeed, you place the blame on the girls."

Collicutt was also given a sexual offences prevention order and told to sign the sex offenders register.

Det Con Ian Gibbard said: "Collicutt deliberately took advantage of young girls, abusing them and threatening them in order to stop them telling anyone.

"We are pleased he took the opportunity to plead guilty and spare the victims from having to come to court, but that in no way makes up for what he did to them."
