Peter Gillett, 59, was jailed for 18 years at Lewes Crown Court in 2018 for offences including rape and indecent assault
Reggie Kray’s ‘adoptive son’ told a 13-year-old girl she was ‘driving him crazy’ before threatening to put her mother ‘in concrete boots in the Thames’ during months of sexual abuse, his victim has revealed.
Peter Gillett, 59, was jailed for 18 years at Lewes Crown Court in 2018 for offences including rape and indecent assault. One of his victims says he is a ‘predator’ who was ‘always ready to pounce’ and scared her so much she used to wet herself.
After taking her virginity when she was just 13 years old the woman says her abuser told her he would kill her mother if she ever spoke about what he had done to her, the Mirror reported.
Gillett called himself the ‘adoptive son’ of East-End gangster Reggie Kray after the pair shared a cell at Parkhurst, Isle of Wight. They made a record together and Gillett proposed to another woman with a ring he says Reggie gave to him.
His victim was 12 when she met Gillett. But within weeks the ‘loud, funny, in-yer-face showman’ sexually abused her.
She said: ‘He was a predator, always ready to pounce and afterwards he’d just give me that look. And I’d be so scared sometimes I’d wet myself.
‘I’m glad he’s behind bars. I hope he rots.’
Gillett used to take her out in his car to people’s houses and made her feel loved. He would tell her: ‘Only I love you.’
When Gillett abused her, she said: ‘I was in tears. When he finished he said, “remember I’m the one who loves you and cares for you”. I sat there in shock and disbelief.’

When she was 13 years old Gillett told her he would take her virginity to prepare her for life.
She said: ‘I froze, overwhelmed with fear, as he climbed on top of me and raped me.’
When he finished he told her: ‘You say anything and your mother will be in concrete boots in the Thames.’
When she was 14 Gillett picked her up from school, took her to his home and attacked her.
His victim did not see him in person again. When she saw him online in 2016 she called the police. And in February 2018 Gillett was convicted.
