A CLECKHEATON man has been jailed for more than two years for the sexual assault of a young girl.
Stuart Dilnot admitted abusing the girl between August 2011 and 2013 when she was under the age of 14.
On one occasion, Dilnot had fondled the girl when she was 12 or 13.
The victim cannot be named for legal reasons, but said the abuse was uncomfortable and strange, and that she still struggles to sleep.
Dilnot, of Brooklyn Road, has previous convictions including battery, production of cannabis and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
The 59-year-old said he had a ‘high libido’ because of medication he was taking.
He pleaded guilty to six counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child under 13, two counts of sexually assaulting a girl under 13, two counts of voyeurism and one count of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 13 or 14.
Dilnot was sentenced to 27 months in jail, as well as being placed on the sexual offenders’ register for 10 years and being given an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.
