Father and son stand accused of ‘raping eight-year-old girl together’
David and Sam Brennan, from Eltham in London, face total of 32 child sex offence charges
A father and son from London “raped an eight-year-old girl together”, according to charges they face at Woolwich Crown Court today.
David Brennan, aged 55, and Sam Brennan, aged 22, stand accused of a combined total of 32 counts of child sex offences, according to reports in the capital’s News Shopper paper.
The pair, both from Eltham Hill in Greenwich, appeared for the first day of their trial yesterday. They deny jointly raping an eight-year-old girl and a nine-year-old girl between 2003 and 2005.
David Brennan has pleaded guilty to raping a child under 18, five counts of indecent assault on a girl under 18, one count of indecency with a child, and two counts of inciting a child to engage in and watch sexual activity.
He denies 18 other sexual offences, among them seven counts of raping a child.
His son Sam also stands accused of taking indecent photos of a child, one of indecency with a child, and one of engaging with a child in non-penetrative sex. He denies all the charges against him.
David Brennan was remanded in custody after the proceedings yesterday, while the opening of the trial was scheduled for today.
