A man has been jailed for 12 years for falsely imprisoning and attacking a young girl in a public toilet.
John Robert Newton, 26, was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court today having admitted a string of offences. These were committed in Workington on 26th August last year.
Newton had pleaded guilty to false imprisonment of the youngster with intent to commit a sexual offence, common assault and assault causing actual bodily harm. He also admitted one count of voyeurism and two breaches of a sexual offences prevention order.
The court heard Newton smashed his way into a locked toilet cubicle being used by the girl. He refused to let her leave, and warned that he would hit her if she tried to call for help.
When she tried to raise the alarm he struck her three times - twice as she cowered on the floor. Before forcing his way into the cubicle he had tried to film the girl with a mobile phone.
He fled the scene but was caught thanks to assistance from several members of the public.
Judge Paul Batty QC described the crime as "every parent's nightmare" and told Newton, of Fisher Street, Workington, that he must serve at least eight years of his sentence before he can be eligible for parole. "Of its type, this (offence) is about as bad as it gets," said Judge Batty.
