The judge said: “I’m satisfied that over a period of time, you saw an opportunity to sexually abuse her. To that extent, the attacks were pre-meditated.”

The court was told that he had also encouraged the victim to take cocaine, however she refused

Stewart was told that he must register as a sex offender for life
