Paedophile, 53, carried out sickening sex attack on schoolgirl

Mark Jones has been jailed after he asked a schoolgirl if she wanted to earn £10 – before carrying out a sickening sex attack on her.

The 53-year-old undressed the girl, touched her chest and then sexually assaulted her.

The matter came to the attention of the police and the defendant was arrested.

He told officers he had touched the girl’s private area and said the incident lasted for between 10 and 20 minutes.

Now Jones has been jailed for 32 months at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

Prosecutor Brian McKenna said: “He asked her if she wanted to earn a tenner. She said she did. He undressed her. He touched her private area and touched her breasts.”

The defendant told police he did not know why he had done it and said he was very sorry.

Jones, of Broadfield Road, Goldenhill, pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child.
