A PAEDOPHILE who sexually assaulted a ten-year-old boy has been jailed.

Bryon Shepherd groomed his victim and offered him ‘gaming tokens’ in an attempt to bribe him into silence.

The 21-year-old, of Grange Road, Barnsley, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.

He was jailed for 18 months and was made the subject of a ten-year restraining order.
