Dad jailed for sex with schoolgirl

A father of one who had sex with a 14-year-old schoolgirl has been jailed for three years.

Shaun Berry was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life and barred from ever working with children.

At Wolverhampton Crown Court, Berry (31) of Dorset Place, Bloxwich, admitted sexual activity with the girl.

William Rickaby, prosecuting, said the offence came to light when the girl told her parents what had taken place and they notified police.

Berry, he added, had threatened to stab himself or take an overdose if the girl revealed what had happened.
