The Westmorland Gazette: Man admits 'grooming' girl for sex Man admits 'grooming' girl for sex

A HOLME man has been put on the sex offenders’ register after admitting grooming a 14-year-old girl for sex.

Craig Richard Mitchell, 34, of Pear Tree Park, pleaded guilty at Carlisle Crown Court to grooming the girl with intent to do something which would have amounted to a sexual offence.


The charge stated that he had contacted her on at least two occasions before meeting her, knowing how young she was, on February 27.

Mitchell also admitted that, after meeting her, he had sexual activity with her by touching her.

Mitchell, who had never been in trouble before, was ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register immediately, although the length of time he will be on it will not be decided until he is sentenced.

He was remanded on bail for probation reports and will be sentenced on August 4.
