DIRTY Paedophile Left Little Girl With "Night Terrors" After Sexually Assaulting Her
Another disgusting paeodphile in the UK, Stephen Jennings, has left his young victim suffering "night terrors" of a man at the end of her bed after she was the victim of two sexual assaults by him.
39-year-old Stephen Jennings, of The Glen, Runcorn, appeared at Chester Crown Court today for sentencing after pleading guilty to three charges of possessing indecent images of children and the conviction of two sexual assaults.
Prosecuting, Philip Clemo said that Stephen Jennings had started the abuse by initially groping his victim over her clothes.
When the young girl asked him to stop, "he refused" and then assaulted her again. The abuse came to light when the mother of the child heard her using "inappropriate language", she then described what had happened to her.
Jennings denied the allegations and denied that he had any "sexual interest in children".
The paedophile's lies were broken down when police searched two of his phones and uncovered 10 Category A abuse images - the most serious type, one of which included a girl around 10 years old "in distress" while being raped, 10 Category B and 178 Category C.
During the trial an adult witness gave evidence against Jennings, saying that while she was having sex with him he had called her "my good little 12-year-old girl".
The mother of the young girl gave an impact statement that detailed how the victim had suffered psychological symptoms of abuse, including "night terrors worrying about a man being at the end of the bed".
Paedophile Jennings had no previous convictions and was living at home with his parents on The Glen in Runcorn.
Recorder Mark Ford sentenced Jennings to four years behind bars and placed him on a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and the sex offenders register.
When handing down the sentence, Recorder Ford said: "It was clear to me from her evidence that she didn't want you to touch her in this way and that her complaints to you didn't prevent you from continuing. "Despite the clarity with which your victim expressed herself, despite her young age, you maintained your denial of the conduct, as was your right but the explanations you set out to provide rather unravelled during cross-examination, and the jury duly convicted you."
