The verdict, delivered at Salisbury Crown Court, highlights the severity of the crime and the lasting impact it has had on the victim, both physically and mentally.

The court heard that Reynolds used scalding water from a kettle to burn the victim’s back and face, leaving him with significant injuries. 

Following the scalding, Reynolds escalated the violence by physically assaulting the victim through punches and kicks. The ordeal reached its darkest point when Reynolds subjected the vulnerable inmate to a horrifying sexual assault. 

The victim, in his 20s at the time, was left traumatized and required treatment at a specialist burns unit in the hospital.

Robert Reynolds faced charges of grievous bodily harm with intent, two counts of rape, and a sexual assault. The evidence presented during the trial painted a grim picture of the vicious attack that took place within the confines of HMP Winchester. 

The guilty verdict was a testament to the crimes’ severity, and the court sentenced Reynolds to 12 years in prison. He is currently serving his sentence at HMP Bullingdon.

The victim, who has since been released from prison, was described as ‘vulnerable’ by authorities. The physical and psychological repercussions of the assault continue to affect him profoundly.

This case underscores the importance of addressing safety and security concerns within correctional facilities, particularly when it comes to protecting vulnerable individuals who may be at greater risk of harm.
