Ron Evans Wiki – Ron Evans Biography
Ron Evans, 82, befriended the woman at a community center in Wembley, London, and assaulted her after inviting her to his flat in July 2022. He was found guilty on Monday and sentenced earlier at the Old Bailey. Evans spent more than 50 years in prison for the murder of Kathleen Heathcote in 1964 and for multiple sexual attacks in Bristol. Evans was released by the parole board in 2018 and moved to London a year later. He had been volunteering at the community center where he met the woman he would later assault, the court was told. When she called him the next day to confront him, he told her “this kind of conversation will get me in trouble,” before hanging up. Pragati Patel, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Ron Evans presented himself as a harmless retiree who volunteered in his local community. “But in reality, and despite his age, he was still very much a deviant sexual predator waiting for the next opportunity from him.
Ron Evans is 82 years old.
The prosecution’s case included strong witness testimony and we were also able to tell the jury about some of Evans’ prior predatory behavior toward women through bad character evidence made admissible in court.” The judge also ordered the payment of compensation to the victim. Evans was found not guilty of two counts of sexual assault in relation to another complainant at the trial at Harrow Crown Court. He was convicted of murdering Mrs Heathcote, a 21-year-old shop worker who disappeared in Nottinghamshire in 1964. He was jailed for life but served just 11 years before being released on license and moving to Bristol, where he committed a series of sexual attacks. Between 1977 and 1979, seven women were sexually assaulted in the Clifton, Redland and Westbury Park areas of the city. After mounting public pressure, Avon and Somerset Police launched a covert operation in January 1979, in which young constables and constables laid “honey traps” for the attacker. In March of that year, police officer Michelle Leonard was grabbed by a man who told her: “Don’t scream or I’ll kill you.” Her attacker turned out to be Evans, who admitted to five attacks.
