A dangerous paedophile who repeatedly preyed on a six year old girl during a terrifying four-year campaign of sexual abuse will spend the next five years in jail

Kyle Welsh from Stockton was subject of a police investigation after police received a third-party report in 2020 of offending against a young girl from around 2009 to 2013.

Inquiries began and he was arrested and charged with committing a horrific campaign of sexual abuse against the little girl

Welsh appeared at court in March, where the 30-year-old pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a child and sexual activity with a child.

He was remanded in HMP Durham and appeared for sentencing last week.

Welsh received a prison sentence of five years and 10 months and will be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO), as well as a restraining order upon his release.
