Swansea man handed 10-year extended sentence for a string of sexual offences

Twenty-year-old Harvey Kristian Blyth from Gorseinon has been given a 10-year extended sentence – seven years plus three on licence – for offences including:

• Rape

• Disclosing private sexual video

• Possession of Class A images

• Possession of extreme pornography

• Stalking

• Racially aggravated public order

Detective Inspector Chris Evans said:

“The bravery of the victim has been incredible from start to finish. I would like to thank the victim for the strength and courage shown throughout the investigation and hope that this will, in some way, provide closure so that she is able to rebuild her life.

“Harvey Blyth is a dangerous individual who fully deserves the sentence imposed on him.

“This case demonstrates the seriousness with which South Wales Police deals with reports of sexual assaults, including those committed against women and girls.

“We will believe you; we will support you and we will do everything we can to bring an offender to justice.”

If you have been a victim of sexual assault, help, advice and support can be sought from specialist Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs). They are located around Wales and have specially trained doctors, nurses and support workers to care for you.
