Married man jailed for having sex with a schoolgirl
A married former Wigan man who groomed a teenager on social media has been jailed for three years.
Michael Wood travelled from home in St Helens to the victim’s home in Darwen where he had sex with her. He initially made contact with the 15-year-old girl on Twitter in December 2015.
Wood, of Cavan Drive, St Helens, admitted three counts of sexual activity with a child when he appeared at Preston Crown Court.
