Offender ID: O-5998


Wheatley Road, Stockton-On-Tees, Durham, TS19.


A child rapist has been jailed years after abusing a youngster.

Stewart Tuck, 24, carried out attacks on his victim when he was a child at secondary school himself. Tuck's victim reported him to the police years later, after finding out the abuser had committed another sex crime. Teesside Crown Court heard that Tuck was caught with an indecent image of a toddler by a person who had access to his phone, in 2022.

He was reported to the police and as Tuck faced court, his previous victim heard what was happening and came forward.

Tuck, of Wheatley Road in Stockton, pleaded guilty to nine historic sexual offences.

Tuck also admitted to his more recent offence of taking indecent photos of a child.

Judge Jonathan Carroll told him: "The discovery of your adult offending was the trigger for your first victim to come forward. You remain a significant risk of casing serious harm, by committing further offences."

The judge handed Tuck an extended sentence, totalling seven-years-nine-months. He was jailed for four-years-and-nine-months; and he will be under an extended licence for three-years, after he is released from prison. He must serve two-thirds of the prison term, before he is eligible for release. He was made the subject of a restraining order. As a registered sex offender, he must register his address with the police, for the rest of his life.
