DVS sentenced to 23 years in jail

10 January 2017

Metropolitan Police have today announced that rapper DVS will be sentenced to 23 years in prison.

The SW9 artist, real name Courtney Hutchinson, was charged after imprisoning a woman in his flat and raping, beating and torturing her with a hot iron.

He tortured the 20 year old girl for three days in his flat before she managed to escape and flee, naked, into the street.

Hutchinson plead guilty during his court case back in July and was sentenced yesterday (Monday 9th). He will be placed on the sex offenders register for the rest of his life.

Detective Sergeant Jimi Tele, from Newham police, said, “I would like to praise the bravery and determination of the victim of this truly harrowing ordeal.

“Courtney Hutchinson subjected his victim to the most shocking and repeated levels of violence. It was her determination, in company with the skill of the investigation team, that allowed the full severity of the attack to be revealed and that ultimately led to Hutchinson’s arrest and conviction.

“The level of violence he inflicted was so severe it demonstrated his total disregard for the victim as a human being, subjecting her to levels of callousness and danger that are rarely seen. The evidence against him was overwhelming but the fact that he decided to plead guilty, removing further ordeal for the victim, can only be welcomed.”

He continued, “The victim and the public can be safe in knowing that Hutchinson no longer poses a risk to them as he begins a significant term of imprisonment.”
