Albert Hickman, 65 and his wife Carolee Hickman have pleaded not guilty to historic charges of rape and sexual abuse dating back 40 years….
A schoolgirl terrified by threats of black magic, made by a woman claiming to be a witch has told a jury how she was sexually abused and raped over and over again.
The alleged victim, now in her 50s, said the horror of what she believes happened to her while at comprehensive school had been buried for 40 years before memories resurfaced.
She told Cardiff Crown Court she went to Carolee Hickman’s Bridgend home while mitching school with friends, aged 11, but was soon being terrified into submission.
“Carolee said she was a witch and would come and get me and would make my mother ill – she even said she could kill my mother if she wanted to,” the alleged victim said.
“She had a knife with a jewelled handle kept in a wooden box with carvings on the top….
“There were tarot cards she used to tell our fortunes and she even had a black cape.”….

She said the abuse came back to her bit by bit when she started having counselling following a series of family tragedies, including close bereavements and cancer.
Her counsellor said alarm bells rang for her when the woman talked of a dark cloud hanging over her, not just since the illnesses and deaths as you would expect, but for 40 years.
“I asked about her childhood but she could remember very little”, the counsellor said
“I would ask her to try to think back – it was her choice – but she was so frightened she didn’t want to look there.
“She knew she lived under a black cloud but was petrified of finding out why.”
Eventually she did think back, it was said and the first returning memories were of black magic, pornography and a woman.
“She remembered darkness and suffocating because a man was top of her and a woman was holding her down….

Carolee Hickman, 64, denies indecently assaulting a schoolgirl and of holding the girl down while her husband Albert John Hickman, 65, raped her in the 1970s….
The court heard she told investigators: “I’ve got books on spells but I wouldn’t know how to do them – I wouldn’t know where to start.
“I had tarot cards too but I didn’t understand them either and a cloak ……and a wand which I bought on eBay. It was just a bit of stick -a right rip off.”
Detective Constable Joanne Lewis told the jury she had found a large number of books on spells and the occult when she arrested the grandmother and her husband, who denies the rape allegation, at home in Shropshire….
She accepted she has an interest in witchcraft but said that had not developed until she left Bridgend and was married for the second time following her divorce from Hickman in 1985.
The court heard the couple were jailed at Northampton Crown Court in November 1982. Mr Hickman was sentenced to five sex offences and she for indecent assault and for aiding and abetting another man to rape a 14-year-old girl as part of a devil worship ritual.

Former fireman Albert Hickman, 64, is accused of raping a Bridgend schoolgirl more than 40 years ago
A man accused of raping a Bridgend schoolgirl while his ‘black magic’ wife held her down told a jury he would not have needed any help to assault a child.
Former “fit” fireman and RAF mechanic Albert Hickman said the allegation, dating back 40 years, when there were allegedly books on witchcraft as well as pornography at his home, was not true….
Hickman, now 64, admitted being jailed for 10 years in the 1980s for the rape of a 13-year-old girl in Shropshire but said while he was stationed at RAF St Athan and attending Salvation Army meetings with his wife several years before he did no such thing.
The alleged victim, now 52, has told the jury she would ‘mitch off’ school and go to the Hickmans’ house after being befriended by his wife Carolee, who herself has admitted holding down another girl for a man to have sex with her during a black magic ritual.
The woman has accused Mrs Hickman of kissing and touching her over a period of time, frightening her into submission with witchcraft, before helping her husband commit rape….
He said he was never involved in black magic rituals himself and if ceremonies did take place at any of their homes he was unaware of it….
The couple were divorced while he served his sentence for abuse and his wife was serving a five-year term but later remarried – after she had had a second husband….
Minnesota cult leader called the girls ‘brides of Christ’ – and he was ‘Christ’ By Karl Kahler Special to the Pioneer Press 05/19/2014
Lindsay Tornambe was just 13 when her parents dropped her off at a Christian camp in Pine County, Minn., where a charismatic cult leader had summoned her to be one of his 10 “Maidens” — virgins who were to be “sacrificed to God” by being married to Christ.
“He started explaining that having sex with me was his way of showing me God’s love, and that because he was Christ in the flesh, I could still remain a virgin even though I had sex with him,” she said.
Now 27, Tornambe says she endured nine years of sexual abuse by Victor Barnard, 52, the head of a secretive cult who is believed to be hiding with followers in the state of Washington after he was charged last month in Minnesota with 59 counts of criminal sexual conduct — chiefly charges of child rape.
I remember Barnard well, as I went to Bible college with him in Kansas in the 1980s, when we were both members of The Way International, a notorious Christian cult based in Ohio. In fact, I recognize the playbook he is alleged to have used to justify the sexual abuse of trusting followers, because he would have learned it from our former masters in The Way….

Pamela Anderson reveals childhood sexual abuse, launches charity
The “Baywatch” star turned animal and environmental activist says she was sexually abused as a child and as a teen. Pamela Anderson made the revelations at a Cannes Film Festival event, where she launched her namesake foundation.
Pamela Anderson has revealed a history of sexual assault, ticking off instances of molestation, rape and gang rape. Her revelations occurred at a charity event held on a luxury yacht at the Cannes Film Festival.
The “Baywatch” star and activist, 46, chose the occasion, which she co-hosted with Vivienne Westwood, to launch the Pamela Anderson Foundation, dedicated to “human, animal and environmental rights.”….
“I did not have an easy childhood,” Anderson said. “Despite loving parents, I was molested from age 6 to 10 by my female babysitter.”….
“I went to a friend’s boyfriend’s house,” she continued. “While she was busy, the boyfriend’s older brother decided he would teach me backgammon, which led into a back massage, which led into rape — my first heterosexual experience. He was 25 years old, I was 12.”….
“My first boyfriend in grade 9 decided it would be funny to gang rape me, with six of his friends. Needless to say, I had a hard time trusting humans. I just wanted off this Earth.”
Anderson said she couldn’t tell her mother, whom she saw as already carrying too heavy of a burden, but instead turned toward animals and nature….
She told the Cannes audience that since finding her “voice” after “Baywatch,” she’d helped change animal-welfare laws in more than 20 countries.
“I’ve spoken to press, parliament, presidents, kings, queens … I know what I’m good at: I’m brilliant at connecting people — communicating.”
She also thanked Rick Salomon, her third and fourth husband, for his support, calling him the “only man” she trusts, other than her sons.
