A man has been convicted and sentenced for two counts of assault by penetration in Newport Pagnell following a police investigation.

Carl Chappillon, 33, of Pennycress Way, Newport Pagnell, was convicted by jury on 30 May 2019 following a trial at Aylesbury Crown Court.

Chappillon was sentenced at the same court on Thursday last week (8/8) to three years’ imprisonment, and has also been placed on the Sex Offenders register for life.

The sentencing relates to the events of 28 August 2017. The victim, a woman in her twenties, had gone back to a friend’s house after a night out, and Chappillon also went back to the house in Newport Pagnell in the same taxi.

The victim had fallen asleep and had woken to find Chappillon sexually assaulting her. The victim reported the sexual assault and an investigation was launched.

Chappillon was arrested on 29 August 2017, and was later charged by postal notification on 5 December 2018.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Lucy Jarrett said, “I am pleased that Chappillon has been convicted for his crimes.

“He sexually assaulted his victim who was asleep and had clearly not consented to engaging in sexual activity.

“I would like to pay tribute to the victim for her patience and bravery throughout and making sure that her attacker was brought to justice through the courts.

“I hope that this conviction shows that Thames Valley Police will always take reports of sexual assault seriously, we will investigate thoroughly and we will bring offenders before the courts to answer for their crimes.”
