A truck driver was arrested on a charge of sexual assault after being accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl while she was asleep, according to police in the United Kingdom.
Now, 46-year-old Jason Bradshaw of Buntingford, has been sentenced to serve 2 years and 3 months in prison after being convicted of one count of sexual assault by penetration.
According to the criminal complaint, Bradshaw had been drinking before he went into the room, where the girl was sleeping with three friends.
The girl woke up to find that she was being touched inappropriately. She turned on the light of her mobile phone to see Bradshaw, who then pretended to be asleep.
The girl told the court that since the attack, she now sleeps with the lights on.
