A LORRY driver has been told he faces jail after being found guilty of sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.

Wayne Gibbons wept in the dock at Bolton Crown Court yesterday after a jury convicted him of the offence following a five-day trial.

The court had heard how Gibbons, aged 43, of Royston Avenue, Bolton, had inappropriately touched the girl thee times in the early hours of January 30 last year.

Gibbons denied committing the crime, claiming the girl was mistaken rather than dishonest but the jury did not believe him.

Judge Elliot Knopf granted Gibbons bail to allow reports to be prepared prior to sentencing on March 3.

But he warned Gibbons: “The overwhelming likelihood is you’ll receive an immediate custodial sentence.”
