Sheffield paedophile jailed for raping young girl

A Sheffield paedophile who sexually abused a young girl for over a year has been jailed.

Steven Fraser, aged 25, of Perkyn Road, Shiregreen, is today starting a nine year prison sentence after he forced a girl aged under 16 to engage in sexual activity on numerous occasions between June 2015 and July 2016.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, came forward to report the abuse last year after she confided in her mum about what had been happening to her.

Fraser, who denied ever abusing the girl, was found guilty of:

  • Four counts of rape of a child

  • Four counts of engaging in penetrative activity with a child

  • One count of assault by penetration

  • One count of engaging in non-penetrative sexual activity with a child.
