A BRITISH Transport Police sergeant has been jailed for two years for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.

Mick Defries, 58, of Barnham, appeared at Lewes Crown Court on Friday (January 10) after pleading guilty to two counts of sexually assaulting a girl under 13 at a hearing in December.

Sentencing, judge Michael Lawson QC, said his punishment should reflect the ‘public disgust’ at his actions.
