Man raped 12-year-old girl at house party
Connor Freeman, 19, of Dukinfield, pleaded guilty to raping a girl under the aged of 13
A man who raped a 12-year-old girl at a house party has been jailed.
Connor Freeman, 19, of Victoria Road, Dukinfield , was at a party where he met the young girl.
They ended up in a bedroom together where Freeman went on to rape her.
The girl initially confided in a friend who told her mother and it was reported to police.
Greater Manchester Police launched an investigation and Freeman was arrested.
Freeman pleaded guilty to rape of a girl under 13-years-old at an earlier hearing.
He was sentenced to 40 months in prison and placed on a Sexual Harm Prevention Order indefinitely, following a hearing at Minshull Street Crown Court.
DC Rochelle Evans, of the Phoenix Team in Tameside, said: “Child sexual exploitation takes place in many forms.
“In this case the victim was raped by Freeman, who paid no heed to the fact that she was only 12-years-old at the time.
“I want to commend the girl for her bravery in reporting what happened to her and helping to stop Freeman from preying on any more girls.”
