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.
