A man who drugged two teenage girls before having sex with them has been jailed for six years.

Dean Goodwin, 27, from Goms Mill, Stoke-on-Trent, gave the 13-year-olds alcohol and cannabis and then had sex with them, police said.

He told one girl he was 18 when he befriended her on social media.

He admitted two charges of child abduction and eight counts of sexual activity with a child when he appeared at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

'Satisfy impulses'

The offences took place between September 2014 and May 2015, police said.

After arranging to meet the first girl, he "spiked" her drink with cannabis and then had sex with her.

He met the second girl at the house of a mutual friend in March last year and also gave her alcohol and cannabis.

She began to feel tired due to the effects of alcohol and drugs and went to bed, police said, and Goodwin then followed her to a bedroom and had sex with her.

Det Insp Simon Caton, of Staffordshire Police safeguarding and investigation team, said: "Goodwin is a predatory sex offender whose prey was very young and vulnerable girls.

"He used alcohol and drugs to break down the resistance of his victims and showed no regard for their safety or wellbeing. His only goal was to satisfy his own impulses."

Goodwin, of Lennox Road, was also given a sexual harm prevention order and must sign the sex offenders' register.
