Millom man jailed for series of sex offences against children


A 25-year-old pervert from Millom has been jailed for a total of 40 months for a series of sexual offences against children

Preston Crown Court heard that Sean Andrew Young, of Festival Road, Millom incited under-age girls on three separate occasions to engage in sexual activity.

A fourth charge related to engaging in sexual activity with a schoolboy between August 14, 2012 and April 27 2013

A fourth young victim decided not to go to court and the charges relating to that schoolgirl were dropped by the prosecution

The volunteer at the local amateur drama society targeted the 13-year-old and 14-year old victims by grooming them on social networking sites including Facebook and encouraging them into sexual activity.

The court heard Young also made SKYPE calls to the youngsters whilst masturbating in full view.

No offences relate to the drama society.
