Billy Sowerby jailed for sexual activity with a child
A man has been jailed for three years for sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 16.
Billy Sowerby committed 11 counts of sexual activity with a child and one count of sexual assault against a child which he had previously admitted.
The girl told Carlisle Crown Court his actions over a six-month period in 2015, had "messed up" her life.
The 26-year-old was handed a three-year sentence and placed on the sexual offender register indefinitely.
Sowerby of Croft Road, Brough, Cumbria was also handed a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years.
