Facebook sex attacker jailed

A MAN who befriended a young girl on a social networking site and went on to sexually assault her has been jailed for four years.

Scott Spencer, 24, used Facebook to befriend the 11-year-old girl and arranged to meet up with her in Long Eaton in April this year.

Spencer, of Ilkeston Road, Nottingham, took her to an area off the canal bank where he kissed, touched and sexually assaulted her.

He pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a female child under 13 and two counts of inciting a female under 13 to engage in sexual activity at a hearing at Derby Crown Court.
