Since the sentencing hearing of police officer Wayne Couzens for the unspeakable rape and murder of victim Sarah Everard last week, women across the country have expressed outrage at the impunity with which the killer went about his crimes.

We've seen women telling their own shocking stories on social media - and those who dismiss them by telling them that these incidents are rare in our county.

So today, during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we expose the sheer scale of crimes committed by men against women and girls in Northamptonshire in just one month.

We are reporting the name of every man who has been convicted or sentenced in Northamptonshire courts during September for violent or sexual crimes against female victims.

Their crimes range from spitting in the face of a female police officer to attempted murder. Their ages range from 12 to 72. There are 64 male offenders on our list - that's more than two per day. And for each perpetrator, there is at least one woman who has been a victim of their crimes.

Our aim is not to frighten people or tarnish all men with the same brush - we know that most men are not criminals - but to highlight the crimes that women in our county face on a daily basis and to ensure that they can call on these facts should their experiences be downplayed.

A Northamptonshire Police spokeswoman, said: “We are pleased to have achieved successful convictions in all of these cases and would firstly commend the brave women here who have come forward to report these crimes to us – the courage that takes cannot be overstated.

“We will fight for justice for every woman who is subjected to a crime, whether that be harassment, violence or sexual assault, and any woman who takes that step to come forward and make a report will be treated with the sensitivity, confidence and confidentiality they deserve.

“Though the number of these cases is depressing, we believe that the issue of violence against women has always been there and it is heartening that more and more women feel strong enough to come forward and have trust in us to keep them safe and bring perpetrators to justice.

“Northamptonshire Police takes all crimes of harassment, violence, abuse or sexual assault extremely seriously, whether the victim be a woman or a man, and we will always do our utmost to achieve justice.”
