Margate: Man Jailed For Sex Assault On Child
A man has been jailed for 18 months for carrying out a sexual assault on a child.
Steven Baker, 33, formerly of Margate was sentenced when he appeared at Canterbury Crown Court on 2 February.
He will also be placed on the Sex Offenders register for 10 years.
Baker pleaded guilty to one charge of sexual activity with a child.
The charge relates to an incident in June 2013 in which Baker entered the bedroom of a 14 year old girl during a house party. He got into her bed where she was sleeping and carried out an assault which lasted several hours.
The victim said she had been too scared to object and had lay in bed pretending to sleep until he left the room.
The following day the victim reported the incident to her family.
Baker was arrested by Kent Police officers shortly after. He claimed he had been drunk and did not remember carrying out the assault.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Neil Martin said: ‘I am pleased with the result and it shows that due to the victim’s bravery in coming forward and reporting this incident we have had a successful prosecution of a predatory offender that seemed to show little remorse for what he had done.’
The inquest into the deaths of three people, found at cliffs in Dover, is due to start.
An Ashford woman who stole around £100,000 from the company she worked for has been sent to prison.
A mother has paid tribute to her "incredibly talented" daughter following her death after she was struck by a train.
