Welsh Labor Party politician Mark Drakeford is the father of Jonathan Drakeford. After being found guilty of sexual allegations in 2018, he was a hot topic in the media and online.
His father was known for having been the Welsh Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Finance from 2016 to 2018, Minister for Health and Social Services from 2017 to 2018 and Minister for Brexit from 2017 to 2018.
Drakeford was found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of assault causing serious bodily harm. He was found guilty by a jury after a full trial. He will be held accountable for his actions under the law.
Jonathan was charged with rape and sentenced to prison. He was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison for “persistent” rape. He was also charged with actual assault.
Jonathan Drakeford, son of Mark Drakeford
Mark Drakeford’s son, Jonathan Drakeford, is currently jailed after previously being charged with sexual advances towards a woman.
In 2018 it was reported that Jonathan Drakeford, the son of Welsh Finance Minister and possible Labor leader Mark Drakeford, had been convicted of rape and assault.
The court sentenced Jonathan Drakeford to eight years and eight months in prison.
In a statement read in court, the victim expressed fears that Jonathan would “come and get me again.” Drakeford’s defense attorney told the court that Drakeford was extremely fragile, had been diagnosed with autism and had a low IQ.
Drakeford, who faces enduring sex offense charges, will serve most of his sentence behind bars before being paroled. Drakeford’s attorney Nigel Fryer claimed Drakeford’s “extremely low” IQ would affect him negatively in prison.
Prosecutors allege that aggravating factors included the duration of the incident and the use of a leather paddle. Drakeford also admitted to making arrangements for a child sex offense.
Although the allegations of rape and violence, which resulted in significant bodily harm, were denied, a jury nonetheless found Drakeford guilty. He admitted trying to arrange a child sex crime.
What was Jonathan Drakeford, son of Mark Drakeford, up to?
Cardiff resident Jonathan Drakeford previously admitted to engaging in child sex after speaking online to a girl he believed was 15 years old. Cardiff Crown Court was told the rape was committed as a “punishment”.
The violent “prolonged” encounter in November 2016 had a significant mental and emotional impact on the victim, according to Judge Jonathan Furness QC.
Clare Wilks, the prosecutor, claims the incident happened in November 2016. The woman, who was in her early 20s, cannot be named for legal reasons. However, the court claims that Drakeford “spanked” her with a leather paddle.
The woman was allegedly “humiliated” by the defendant by being forced to stand in a corner while being held down with her underwear, according to evidence presented to the court. The judge saw further embarrassing and degrading behavior.
She said the incident damaged her current relationship and made it difficult for her to trust other people. She remained afraid to come out and testify because she thought no one would believe her.
Sexual assault is one of the most excruciating and heartbreaking things that can happen to a human being, says Detective Constable Alex Jenkins of South Wales Police.
