Lifeguard child rapist Gareth Hall's 'ridiculous' claims

A lifeguard from Gwynedd has been jailed for 50 years in the United States for raping a 10-year-old girl.

Gareth Vincent Hall, 22, from Talysarn, admitted four counts of rape, two of serious sexual offences and one of online sexual corruption of a child.

He was sentenced in Eugene, Oregon, on Tuesday.

Erik Hasselman, assistant district attorney for Lane County, said Hall's claims that he believed the girl was 16 or 17 seemed "pretty ridiculous".
