Anthony Morgan, 42, raped a toddler 225 times from when she was just three years old
A toddler repeatedly raped by a monstrous paedophile was left so traumatised she barricaded her bedroom door with toys.
Anthony Morgan was jailed for 16 years in March 2017 for raping his first victim from when she was aged six onwards.
The drug-addict paedophile was handed an extended four years on licence for the sickening ‘campaign of rape’.
But the 42-year-old sex offender was dragged back to Liverpool Crown Court after another traumatised victim came forward.
Morgan, from Liverpool, admitted eight counts of rape against the second girl, from when she was aged three.
Judge Andrew Menary, QC, jailed him for 18-and-a-half years with an extended six years on licence.
Robert Jones, prosecuting, said the latest offences came to light after the girl started to show ‘signs of sexualised behaviour’.
He told the court: ‘It’s quite apparent the little girl was behaving in a way that was entirely indicative of long-standing abuse.
‘It manifested itself in other ways – she would try and barricade her bedroom door with toys. She became very upset on a number of occasions.’
He said the victim spoke out after she ‘became extremely upset with tears pouring down her face’ and ‘said things were bad inside her head’.
Mr Jones said she was also left frightened of people touching her and, when describing the abuse said it was ‘horrible’.
He said the little girl recalled how she would often vomit after the attacks, but felt like ‘she did not know what was going on’.
When interviewed by police, Morgan admitted the abuse and said he would give her sweets and warn her not to tell anyone.
Mr Jones said: ‘He said he felt bad about what he was doing but was unable to explain why he persisted in the abuse. He blamed his urges.
‘He accepted he had caused the most grievous and psychological damage to her and said he regretted it now.’
Morgan – aka Anthony Murphy – previously admitted eight counts of rape and one count of attempted rape against the first girl.
He raped her on no less than 225 occasions and offered her ice cream and other treats in exchange for sex.
Eventually, she confided in an adult, revealing the rapes had happened ‘for as long as she could remember’.
Morgan also warned her to keep quiet and ‘she thought nobody would believe her’.
The girl has struggled with education, suffered emotionally and physically and sustained ‘severe psychological trauma’.
She told the court she feared she would never be able to have a family, as she could not face having sex in the future.
Morgan will serve at least two thirds of his sentence in jail and will only be released early if a parole board deems it safe.
This means he will be behind bars for at least the next 12 years and could serve the whole 18-and-a-half year sentence in prison.
He must also sign on the Sex Offenders Register and comply with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for life.
Judge Menary said: ‘What you did to this victim has effectively ruined her life. It’s highly unlikely she will now enjoy normal, healthy child relationships.
‘Any adult relationship for her will be challenging, particularly intimate relationships, which she is bound to find very difficult indeed.
‘What this means is you have devastated the lives now of two children.’
