Child Rapist Receives Red Carpet Treatment During Visit to Buckingham Palace
Ian Knight was a former soldier found guilty of 10 sex offenses
A pedophile rapist who enjoyed a day out in Buckingham Palace to watch his wife be presented with an MBE has seen many of his victims speak out with a fury that he could attend such a 'worthy occasion' protected by the royal elites.
Ian Knight was a former soldier found guilty of 10 sex offenses, including repeatedly raping a young child that was just 8 years old.
the 55-year-old pedophile attended the palace with his wife, Major Pauline Murray-Knight, which took place in the same celebrities Ed Sheeran and JK Rowling were being honored.
The DailyMail reports: Knight watched as the Duke of Cambridge presented Pauline with an MBE for her mental health work.
She has also counseled male and female rape victims.
Speaking to the Sunday People, one of Knight's victim's said: 'He is a truly appalling man who has ruined my life.
'I can't believe he was at the palace while police were aware he was accused of such serious offenses.
'My blood ran cold.'
Following the Palace trip in December, Knight, of Nuneaton, Warwickshire, was jailed for 12 years in March.
Warwickshire Crown Court was told he raped an eight-year-old girl several times when he was in his early teens.
During a game of hide and seek Knight also assaulted a young boy.
The creep managed to evade justice for 40 years until one of his victims went to the police, after many years of counselling, which saw his other victims come forward.
The victim added: 'To find out the man responsible for my trauma has been to such a worthy occasion fills me with fury.
'His victims are deserve recognition and not him. I hope we can all find peace and he rots in prison where he belongs.'
The palace did not wish to comment.
