Pervert filmed sex abuse of teenager

A SEX pervert who made home porn movies of himself sexually abusing his 14-year-old victim has been jailed for five years.

Paul Barry Craft (41), who groomed the teenager and filmed her as he abused her at his Goldthorpe home was branded “wicked” by a judge at Sheffield Crown Court.

Jailing him for five years, Judge Annabel Carr QC told him: “You groomed this young woman who was little more than a child.

“You harmed her and ruined her teenage years. Your conduct was wicked. You engaged for your own gratification in sexual acts with her.

Craft, of St Mary’s Road, pleaded guilty to eight charges—four of sexual activity with a child and four of taking indecent photographs of a child.
