Pervert groomed schoolgirl for sex

A pervert has been jailed after he admitted grooming a 14-year-old schoolgirl for sex

Unemployed Graham Huntington of Peterlee, appeared at Durham Crown Court where he admitted several sexual offences involving the grooming of a schoolgirl

The court was told that Huntington was friends with the victims father who he then added on Facebook as a ‘friend’. 

He messaged the girl numerous times which resulted in him grooming her.

Huntington then coaxed the girl and a group of her 14-year-old friends to his flat with the promise of supplying them with alcohol and drugs. 

Once intoxicated, the pervert demanded sexual acts from the girls, in exchange for the drink and drugs that he had given them.

From the start, Huntington was fully aware of the ages of all the children, and his offences were done to satisfy his own perverted sexual gratification

Huntington was sentenced to a total of 15 months imprisonment

He was told that he must register as a sex offender for 10 years

He was ordered to pay £140 court costs, and was given a sexual harm prevention order until further notice
