Man Jailed For Sexual Abuse Of Teenagers

Stephen Smith, of Creighton Avenue, Rawmarsh, was found guilty of 10 sexual offences following a trial at Sheffield Crown Court in February this year.

He was back in court today for sentencing and was jailed for a total of 10 years.
He will also have to sign on to the sex offender register indefinitely upon his release.
Investigating Officer Detective Constable Rachel Morton, said: “Smith took advantage of two vulnerable girls, subjecting them to numerous ordeals over a period of time. 
 
“The investigation, launched in 2014, revealed the vile nature of Smith’s abuse and I would like to praise the two victims in coming forward to tell us what happened to them. 
 
“They have been exceptionally brave and composed throughout this entire process and without their courage to come forward, Smith would not have been brought to justice today. 
 
“Smith put two vulnerable children through a despicable ordeal and I hope that seeing him behind bars will go some way towards helping the victims and their families to move forward with their lives.” 
 
Her Honour Judge Davies, on sentencing Smith, told him: “You have displayed a sexual attraction to female children, with elements of grooming and a strong element of persistence on your part.
“You exploited them for your own sexual gratification.
