A Feltham young offenders prison officer has been warned he faces a long time in jail for a string of sickening sex attacks on a girl aged just six.

Ronald Hollier, 42, forced the youngster to perform vile acts on him then gave her lollipops and sweets as a reward.

He carried out the assaults twice at a home in Surrey and once in his car while he was driving.

Hollier, from Prince Henry Road in Charlton, south-east London, was found guilty of three counts of rape of a child between October 2004 and June 2005 following a week long trial at Guildford Crown Court The brave victim, who is now seven, gave evidence to the jury via a videolink and said she initially liked Collier but said he became "a nasty man".

The girl said she was "scared and confused" about what was going on but eventually confessed what was going on to her mother who alerted police. Her mother said the victim told her Hollier said he would say it was her fault if she told anybody.

Hollier was arrested but denied he had been involved in any indecent activity with the girl.

Crown Court Judge Michael Addison warned him he faced a long custodial sentence when he is given his sentence next month.
