‘Monstrous predator’ plied schoolgirl with alcohol to rape her

JAILED: Mark Bradley

A sex predator who raped a teenage girl has been jailed for 12 years.

Mark Bradley, aged 55, of Wellstock Lane, Little Hulton was sentenced at Manchester Crown Court after admitting raping a 15-year-old girl.

On Sunday, September 10, 2017, police were called to reports that a 15-year-old girl had been raped at an address in Little Hulton.

Bradley was arrested following an investigation. However he continuously denied having any sexual contact with the victim.

Detectives established that on two separate occasions — in August 2017 and in September 2017 — Bradley had given the girl alcohol and raped her.

When Bradley appeared before court he pleaded guilty. As well as the jail sentence, Bradley was given an indefinite sexual harm prevention order and is required to be on the sex offenders register for life.
