A boozed-up pervert has been jailed for stamping on the head of a 15-year-old girl.

Ben Wilson, aged 23, of Coniston Road, Mexborough, was sent to prison for 16 weeks after pleading guilty to assault at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court.

The court heard Wilson had drunk a bottle of vodka and several cans of lager before his attack took place on August 30.

He put his hand on the girl’s thigh and told her he wanted to have sex with her.

The girl – who has not been named for legal reasons – refused because she knew Wilson was in a relationship with another 15-year-old girl. Graham Measures, prosecuting, said this made Wilson angry and he ‘stamped on her face two or three times barefoot, leaving slight swelling.’

Wilson was previously jailed for seven months in October last year after being found guilty of sexual activity with another girl under the age of 16 at Sheffield Crown Court.

The dad-of-one was also placed on the sex offenders’ register for ten years.

Tim Williams, mitigating, told the court that Wilson, who is now single, had a difficult sexual history.

“He hasn’t had a relationship with anybody close to his own age,” he said.

“His first sexual encounter came at the age of 14 with a woman who was 22. That is a significant age gap, especially at that age. The woman herself was committing an offence at that time.

“When he was 18 he had a relationship with a woman who was 38. He has also had relationships with girls who are quite a few years younger than him.

“One of these relationships, with a 17-year-old girl, resulted in a son, who is now eight months old.”

The court heard the baby boy was in care and Wilson, who had grown-up without a father figure himself, was seeking for him to be cared for by his mother – the baby’s grandmother.

Mr Williams said: “Given his biological father’s attitude to family it would be easy for him to let somebody else look after the child but he hasn’t done that, he wants to look after his son, and he should be commended for that.”

Sentencing Wilson, who appeared distressed during the hearing, chair of the bench Phil Beavers said: “This is a serious offence, and you are lucky to some extent that this matter was not dealt with in the Crown Court. It is only because you weren’t wearing shoes that it has been dealt with here.

“You will be released after eight weeks if you behave properly.”

Wilson, who pleaded guilty to assault by beating at an earlier hearing, was also ordered to pay his victim £150 compensation.
