A Grasby businessman has been jailed for four-and-a-half years for sexually exploiting a 13-year-old girl he met online.

York Crown Court heard how Mark Stuart Lindsay, 33, of Clixby Lane, Grasby encouraged the girl to lie to her parents, telling them she was having a sleepover with a friend when she was in fact travelling to his house for sex.

Her mother suspected something was wrong after the girl got lost on her way home.

She examined her daughter’s mobile phone and found a large number of highly sexual text messages and pictures.

Nine other men from around the country have also been jailed for abusing the same girl - she was left mentally scarred by her experiences.

Lindsay pleaded guilty to having sexual activity with a child, grooming a child for sex and arranging a sex meeting with a child.

The court heard how the girl had made a dating profile, on which she claimed to be 18, because she was looking for a romantic relationship, but the men who responded were only interested in sex - despite finding out her true age.
