‘Predatory’ Normacot paedophile, 27, jailed for having sex with schoolgirls


‘Predatory’ paedophile Dean Goodwin has been jailed for six years after he had sex with two schoolgirls.

The 27-year-old started a relationship with a vulnerable teenager and had sex with her over a period of about a year.

And he had sex with another girl after giving her vodka to drink.

Now Goodwin has been jailed at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

Prosecutor James Dunstan said one victim was aged 13 when she met the defendant. He gave her some vodka and when she was ‘feeling worse for wear’ she went to bed. Goodwin followed and the pair had consensual sex.

The defendant formed a relationship with his other victim when she was aged 14 and had sex with her on a regular basis.

Mr Dunstan said: “The defendant told her he was just 18. We say he lied to make the relationship a more attractive proposition to the girl. Sex occurred regularly at his home and where she was living.

“At times he would be violent. He assaulted her when he saw her talking to a friend. He told her she was beautiful and he wanted to marry her.

“He said if she did not have intercourse he would go off with someone else.”

The defendant was served with a child abduction warning notice but he continued to see the girl and used ladders to climb into the home where she lived.

The girl was relocated to another part of the country but returned and the pair again had sex after she was provided with alcohol and amphetamine.

Goodwin, of Lennox Road, Normacot, pleaded guilty to eight charges of sexual activity with a child and two counts of child abduction.

Richard McConaghy, mitigating, said, conceded the defendant, a mechanic, should not have got involved with either girl because of their ages.

Jailing Goodwin, Judge David Fletcher said: “This was behaviour that was entirely wrong and inappropriate. You knew what you were doing was not right. You knew it was not legal but you carried on regardless. It must have been for the satisfaction of your own sexual desires.”

Goodwin was made the subject of an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order and was placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.
