Man (67) sexually assaulted girl (13)

A 67-year-old man who gave cigarettes to a 13-year-old girl, in return for "hugs and kisses", was jailed for eight months yesterday after being found guilty of sexual assault.

John Doyle, from Crookstown, Co Cork, received a two-year sentence, with 16 months suspended, after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting the girl in April 2009.

The court heard Doyle had made inappropriate contact with the girl in his home. In a victim impact statement the girl said she now finds "it hard to trust people".
