Basingstoke: Man Jailed For Grooming Girl

A man who sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl he arranged to meet in Basingstoke has been jailed.

47-year-old Gary Cooper from Windsor Drive in Hertford pretended to be a 15-year-old girl on an online chat site five days before they met in July last year.

A police investigation uncovered a series of offences against the 12-year-old and another girl for which Cooper pleaded guilty.

He has been jailed for 14 years and four months.
