Jail for brothel owner who threatened to cut off woman's fingers

A man behind a brothel in a leafy Preston suburb has been jailed for eight and a half years following a sickening conspiracy to blackmail a vulnerable woman.

Sicarius McGrath, also known as Anthony Harrington, was found guilty of conspiracy to blackmail, following a two month trial at Preston Crown Court.

McGrath, 36, of Wince Close, Middleton, Manchester, admitted charges of possessing an offensive weapon, possessing Class A drugs and controlling prostitutes for financial gain whilst managing a brothel in Victoria Road, Fulwood. He was also given a Serious Crime Prevention Order for five years and was disqualified from driving for two years upon his release from prison.

Co-defendant Suhail Patel, known as Solly, who used a phone in his prison cell at HMP Haverigg to conspire with McGrath to collect a debt from a woman in Preston, was jailed for seven years. Patel, 34, of Blackpool Road, Ashton-On-Ribble, Preston, was serving a prison term for violent disorder involving a gun and passed the responsibility for collecting the debt to McGrath.

Defendant Paul Williams was sentenced to 18 months for assisting an offender, after making phone calls and supplying transport to McGrath, who had stabbed a man in self defence on Brixton Road in Preston in June 2015, and was given a two year driving ban.Brett Gerrity, Senior Crown Prosecutor for CPS North West said: " McGrath and Patel aggressively pursued the woman leaving her terrified for her own and her family’s safety. Threats were made that her fingers would be cut off and the windows of her family home were smashed with bricks on three occasions.

"Patel was well aware that violence was to be the mechanism for this debt to be enforced . The victim has shown great bravery in coming forward and testifying against the two men enabling us to bring them to justice."Sicarius McGrath is a violent and manipulative man who was previously the subject of a gang injunction in Liverpool. He terrorised people ensuring that they lived in fear of him and willingly took on the debt of another man in order to exert power over a vulnerable woman. “The Crown Prosecution Service and the police will continue to work together to ensure that those who aim to bring fear and misery to our communities are brought to justice." Preston Crown Court heard when McGrath was arrested he was in possession of a CS gas canister and cocaine.

Police examined his phone and found evidence which proved he controlled prostitutes at the house he rented, including text messages agreeing prices with clients for the women’s sexual services.He also set up a website for an escort service and sent out photographs to potential clients.The authorities are hoping to seize back Patel and McGrath's ill gotten gains using Proceeds of Crime legislation.

A male escort used his contacts in the industry to introduce two women to gangster pimp Sicarius McGrath - who put them to work in his Preston brothel. Neil Horncastle, 39, said he “turned a blind eye” to whether McGrath would advertise the women for sex.

McGrath, who changed his name to Sicarius, meaning ‘assassin’ by deed poll, was jailed for 18 months in December after being convicted of running a brothel from a leafy suburban street in Preston’s conservation zone - after being thrown out of Liverpool under a gang injunction.

Now Horncastle, of Clover Drive, Birkenhead , has been handed a suspended sentence after admitting he introduced women to McGrath.

Judge James Adkin, sentencing, said: “You were enjoying life as a time to time escort in Birkenhead. McGrath was running a brothel in Fulwood, Preston. Sicarius McGrath contacted you, you having contacts in the industry, to provide details. You accept you provided such details by text. You sent him pictures of the women, you provided transportation and provided payment to one of the women through your bank account.

“Sicarius McGrath is a violent criminal. You knew that but nonetheless you exposed these women to his sphere of influence where they were undoubtedly at risk of exploitation by him and others.”
