A LUNDWOOD paedophile who raped a 14-year-old girl has been put behind bars for eight years.
Liam Hodgson, 31, of Abbots Road, offered the youngster a cigarette spiked with spice in the town centre, before taking her out of sight and raping her, according to a court case at Sheffield Crown Court on August 5.
Hodgson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to eight years in prison, and also made subject to an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
