Paedophile groomed and abused young girl

A paedophile who used sweets and cash to ‘prostitute’ a girl from the age of six has been jailed for 17 years.

Robert Price, 54, groomed the child with gifts while looking after her in the early 90s.

Judge Michael Simon told the pervert: ‘This in particular made her feel special and through this you gained her trust, enough that the next phase could proceed. ‘It was during this period of time that the real grooming commenced.’
