Former Milford Haven resident denies historical sexual offences

Published

on

IN A RECENT court appearance at Swansea Crown Court, Gary Hicks, a 63-year-old resident of Oregon Way, Luton, has firmly denied allegations of historical sexual offences dating back to the 1980s.

The charges levelled against Hicks involve serious accusations of sexual misconduct against two children in the Milford Haven area during the period between 1985 and 1989.

Hicks faces a total of five charges, with two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse alleged to have occurred between 1987 and 1989.

These particular charges concern a girl who was between nine and 11 years old at the time of the offences.

Additionally, Hicks is accused of inciting the same girl to commit acts of gross indecency on no fewer than 20 occasions over a span of two and a half years.

The charges do not end there; Hicks is also confronted with two counts of indecent assault.

The first of these alleges that he assaulted the aforementioned girl on at least five separate occasions. The second charge involves a boy under the age of 16, with Hicks accused of assaulting him on at least ten occasions between 1985 and 1989.

In his defence, Hicks has entered a plea of not guilty to all the charges presented against him.

In light of his plea, Judge Huw Rees has scheduled a trial for July 29. Until then, Hicks has been readmitted to unconditional bail, awaiting the opportunity to contest the accusations in court.

Milford couple were out drug dealing, whilst child, 10, slept at home alone

Published

on

SWANSEA CROWN COURT heard this week that a Pembrokeshire couple were dealing large amounts of cannabis and cocaine. It was said in court that they were out in their car doing their illegal activities, even as their ten-year-old child slept home alone.

Rhian Warlow and Daniel Davies were exposed by their extravagant purchases, paid for with proceeds from the sale of the drugs.

Among the luxury items acquired were Rolex and Royal Oak timepieces, diamond-studded jewellery, and a BMW key ring embellished with a diamond.

The couple were intercepted by police while driving on the A477 towards Milford Haven on the afternoon of December 29, last year. This followed intelligence suggesting their vehicle’s association with drug dealing.

Rhian Warlow and Daniel Davies

Upon being stopped, Warlow and Davies claimed to have been patronising B&Q in Carmarthen. However, a thorough search of their vehicle unveiled a concealed 493 gram block of cocaine in the boot’s panel, valued at approximately £61,000.

Subsequent to their arrest at the site, Warlow disclosed that her daughter was left unattended at home.

Police, attending her residence, discovered her 10-year-old daughter asleep amidst a noticeable odour of cannabis.

Further investigation revealed four bags of cannabis weighing a total of 921 grams, worth in excess of £10,000, alongside scattered cash amounting to £1,255 in a cardboard box, £679 in loose notes and change, and £260 in notes within the bedroom.

The prosecution detailed Warlow’s indulgence in various luxury goods funded by their illicit activities. Analysis of Davies’ mobile phone messages exposed his frequent drug dealings, often in ounces and sometimes in kilograms, with Warlow implicated as both his driver and financial beneficiary. Notably, she too was involved in orchestrating transactions independently.

The couple holidayed in Fira, Santorini, Greece

Davies, previously convicted twice for six offences, the latest in 2007, and Warlow, with a single conviction in 2009, expressed remorse through their legal representatives.

Davies, 35, from Hawthorn Path, Milford Haven, lamented involving Warlow, acknowledging the detrimental effect on her familial relationships.

Warlow, 31, from Gelliswick Road, Hakin, exhibited regret, particularly for the repercussions on her bond with her children, attributing her actions to naivety.

Both pleaded guilty to charges of possessing with intent to supply and concerning themselves in the supply of both cocaine and cannabis.

Recorder Barry Clarke sentenced Davies to three years of imprisonment, while Warlow received a two-year suspended sentence, mandating 200 hours of unpaid work and 30 days of rehabilitation activities.

The prosecution announced plans to pursue the confiscation of their criminal profits under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
