Former world darts champion Ted Hankey has been sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a woman.

Hankey, 54, held the young woman and, with an “attitude of justice,” sexually assaulted his victim, Chester Crown Court heard.

Chester recorder judge Steven Everett arrested him and said Hankey “would have denied it to the bitter end” had the attack not been caught on film.

The footage was played back in court after the courtroom was cleared of the public and press.

Hankey, of Stoke-on-Trent, pleaded guilty at a previous hearing on the single count of assault on Sept. 10 last year in Crewe.

The darts player, whose nickname is De Graaf, was BDO world champion in 2000 and 2009.

Now Cheshire Police have welcomed the two-year jail term. Hankey has also been tasked with signing the sex offender registry for the next 10 years.

After the case, Detective Laura Bradshaw, who led the investigation, said: “I would like to commend the victim for the courage and courage she displayed during the investigation.

“The evidence she provided proved vital in the prosecution of Hankey and left him no choice but to plead guilty to the charges against him.

“While the victim will never be able to forget what Hankey did to her, I hope the conclusion of this case provides some closure and allows her to move on with her life.

District Judge Nicholas Sanders said the case would be sent to Chester Crown Court, where Hankey will be sentenced on May 12

‘I also hope that this case encourages other victims of sex crimes to come forward and report them to us.

“We take all reports of sexual offenses very seriously and any reports will be thoroughly investigated, with the wishes and needs of the victim being paramount.

‘Victims should never be ashamed to talk about what they have experienced.

“They receive the help and support they need from our specialist officers, as well as from other relief agencies we work with, and all victims of sexual offenses have the right to anonymity.”
