A former Hare Krishna worshipper who spent a decade in a temple learning to be celibate has been jailed for a string of sexual crimes on women and children.
Sean Keen spend ten years in the temple in Canterbury, Kent, following the strict religion which forbids sex, unless for procreating, and alcohol.
But after leaving, the 50-year-old embarked on a campaign of drunken sexual terrorism which saw him rape a woman on several occasions and give a child a love bite.
The white rapist was jailed at Canterbury Crown Court for 18 years by a judge who described him as a sex obsessed “tyrant”.
The court heard how the sex terrorist became a member of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness and practiced at the temple for ten years before the attacks.
Despite vowing to remain celibate and refrain from drinking, he took up a five-can-a-day lager habit and violently raped a woman on several occasions.
He also forced a dog to perform a sex act on him, and sexually abused children. The sexual degenerate was convicted of three counts of sexual assault and four cruelty
charges. During his trial in August, the court heard how one victim said the dog lover had treated her like a prostitute.
Prosecuting Christopher May said: “He was really angry and he had her by the throat. “She kept saying “No”.
“She struggled with him and they ended up on the floor. He really scared her and said he could snap her neck like a twig.”
One of his victims claimed he had used her “like his toy” and “as if she were a prostitute for his pleasure”.
The court heard that two of the people who were assaulted by the man had considered suicide after being forced to endure his “mental torture”.
Judge Adele Williams said: “You have shown no real remorse or insight into what you put your victims through or the anguish and long-term psychological damage you have made them suffer. You were obsessed with sex and became a tyrant.”
Following the dog-fucking-pedophile’s conviction a spokesperson for the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) said: “The individual in question has no current
affiliation, position or association with the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). He has not had any contact with the organisation for over ten years.
His actions are abhorrent and criminal and we do not condone them in any way. They are not only a gross violation of our morals, values and code of conduct, but are morally
reprehensible for any member of society.
We have every confidence in the judicial system and believe his sentence should reflect the gravity of his crimes. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
