A sex predator who raped a teenage schoolgirl on his own wedding night has been jailed for 30 years.
Jason Guzikowski, 51, started abusing the girl when she was just 13 in 1997, going on to assault her on several occasions over the next two years.
One of his heinous sex crimes took place on the night he got married, Birmingham Live reports.
The anonymous victim escaped Guzikowski's clutches when she turned 15 and moved away to a different part of the UK, but in 2012 they reconnected and he continued his abuse.
The victim finally plucked up the courage to contact police in 2019 and Guzikowski was arrested.
On April 28, Guzikowski, of Mansfield Woodhouse, Notts., was jailed for 30 years after he was found guilty of eight counts of rape following a trial at Nottingham Crown Court.
The court heard Guzikowski had previously been jailed for four-and-a-half years for sexual offences committed against children and adults.
Detective Chief Inspector Clare Dean, of Nottinghamshire Police's Public Protection team, said: "Guzikowski is a dangerous sexual predator.
"Thirty years absolutely reflects the gravity of his offending and the impact it has had on the victim.
