Joseph McCann Wiki
The evil sexual beast Joseph McCann spent his childhood stealing, setting cars on fire and terrorizing his terrified neighbors. So violent were he and his brothers that he became one of the first in Britain to receive an ASBO, with only 14 years. The trio conducted an intimidation campaign in their impoverished state of Manchester during the 1990s.
Joseph McCann Past Criminal Reports
Details of McCann’s criminal past can be reported for the first time today after he was convicted of 37 charges related to 11 victims, including eight violations, false imprisonment, and kidnapping. The convicted thief, who had been released after an error in the probation service, faced cocaine and vodka, kidnapped, raped and assaulted victims aged 11 to 71 in Watford, London, and the northwest. McCann, who now faces a life sentence, changed his appearance and moved through five areas of the police force while evading the police for 15 days despite telling his first victim his last name.
But McCann, his elder brother Sean and younger brother Michael have been striking fear into locals for years.
One told MailOnline: ‘They were a horrible family, absolutely vile – the scum of the earth.’
The brothers became notorious in 1999 when they were given the first ASBO and left the defiant court. Looking at the cameras, McCann and his brothers, Sean, 16, and Michael, 12, were seen screaming and smiling. McCann grew up on the Beswick estate in Manchester, a private area of the city that has now been torn down.
Born in 1985, Richard’s son, a Scottish builder, and Margaret, a mother with ties to the traveler community, grew up with a fierce temper and struggled to control his anger. He and his brothers stole for sport and threatened anyone who got in their way. At age 11 he had his first brush with the police and was convicted in 1998 for robbery.
So prolific was the three boys stealing that when they were finally banned from the estate the following year, takings at the local shops increased by £14,000 a week.
McCann was in and out of prison until 2008 when armed with a knife, he broke into the home of a frail 85-year-old man in Bedford.
