But after his release, Samson went a campaign of physical and mental abuse against two women by raping imprisoning and threatening to kill them.

A jury at Bradford Crown Court on Monday found Samson guilty of 24 counts of rape, two counts of control and coercive behaviour, threats to kill and three counts of false imprisonment

Detective Inspector Seth Robinson, who led the investigation, said: “Samson’s conviction, for what can only be described as horrendous crimes, has removed a dangerous and obsessed sexual predatory from our streets.

"It was evident that he had planned to commit these offences against the victims and if they had not had the courage to come forward, he would continue to abuse them.

Samson was found guilty of four counts of rape, two counts of control and coercive behaviour, threats to kill and three counts of false imprisonment at Bristol Crown Court (PA)

“He is a coward and showed no remorse for what he had done to his victims and the campaign of abuse he inflicted on them.

“The two victims have showed immense bravery throughout the whole criminal process and I hope that the sentencing of this depraved man allows them some closure to their horrific ordeal.

"They have been supported by specially trained officer since they came forward to the police to report the offences.”
