A man from Bermuda has been sentenced to over 40 years in prison for committing a series of sex acts on two young sisters

The judge labeled the 43-year-old man, a “vile and cruel monster”, during his sentencing.

The man named Locksley Cummings showed no emotion during his 25-minute sentencing and will spend at least 17½ years behind bars before he is eligible for parole. 

Cummings had been found guilty by a jury of five counts of sexual exploitation after a trial in February. He had denied the charges. 

According to reports, the offenses on the first victim took place between 2007 and 2009 when she was aged eight or nine.

The man also allegedly touched the girl “sexually on one occasion and had intercourse with her on the second occasion”. 

According to reports, seven years later, Cummings began preying on the younger sister of the first victim, who was also a young girl at the time, the court heard. 

“Between 2016 and 2021, Cummings had intercourse multiple times with his second victim, who was aged nine when the attacks started. He also made his victim perform a sex act on him on one occasion”, a report from Loop said. 

The majority of the incidents occurred at Cummings’ home, according to the article. 

Cummings was sentenced to 17 years for two counts against the first victim, and 18 years for three counts against the second victim. 

Because the incidents had taken place over two separate periods, the judge said that the sentences should run consecutively rather than concurrently. 

 “You  violated that little girl like only a monster could. To think that any person could be so vile and cruel. May you one day step away from your cowardly denial of these heinous crimes and address your demons. You will have to ask yourself the question, ‘Can I ever forgive myself”? the judge asked Cummings during the sentencing.
