A man from Stowmarket who groped a schoolgirl has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Steven Nunn, 55, of Thomas Young Close, pleaded guilty at Ipswich Crown Court to two offences of sexual activity with a child and one of sexual assault.

The court heard how Nunn, a paint sprayer, had squeezed the girl’s breasts through her clothes after making comments about them and ‘snogged’ her.

Prosecuting, John Livingstone said the police were told after the girl confided during a counselling session.

Nunn, who had no previous convictions, had expressed remorse for what he had done, said Catherine Bradshaw, defending.

Judge John Devaux told Nunn he felt there had been a degree of grooming which was an aggravating feature.

Nunn was sentenced to 12 months jail, suspended for 18 months and ordered to do up to 50 rehabilitation sessions.

He must sign the sex offenders register for 10 years and made him the subject of a sexual harm prevention order. He was ordered to pay £1,000 prosecution costs.
