A paedophile from Northampton has been handed a lengthy prison sentence by a judge for sex offences against a girl.
Lee Brothers, of Archangel Square, Camp Hill, appeared at Northampton Crown Court yesterday to be sentenced.
Judge Rupert Mayo handed the 37-year-old an eight-year jail term, half of which he will serve in prison, and the other half he will serve on licence.
Brothers - who has two previous convictions for violent matters, including actual bodily harm - was also made to sign the Sex Offender Register indefinitely and will be made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order on release.
The order will make it a criminal offence for him to be alone with any girl under the age of 16.
