A PAEDOPHILE prisoner will serve six more years behind bars after he admitted sexually abusing an 11-year-old-girl.

Bolton Crown Court heard how Colin Cambrey, 51, who is currently serving a nine year sentence for indecently assaulting a girl in the early 2000s, preyed on his second victim between August 2010 and August 2012.

Wayne Johnson, prosecuting, said Cambrey, who was a friend of the victim’s family, invited the girl to his house on Carnation Road, Farnworth, under the false pretences of uploading Playstation games on to a memory stick for her.

On entering the house, having checked to see his lodger was not in, he took her upstairs where he put pornography on his computer and got her to watch it.

He then dropped his trousers and told her to touch him.

Mr Johnson said: “She was shocked and said no, but he grabbed her hand and forced her to perform a sex act on him.”

Cambrey, who appeared in court via videolink from HMP Forest Bank, went on to touch the girl’s breasts before pulling her leggings and knickers down and touching her.

The court heard on another occasion the victim was in her living room, watching TV with a blanket over her while her mother was sitting close by.

Cambrey sat next to her and he touched and rubbed her legs underneath the blanket.

Mr Johnson said the victim had read about Cambrey’s conviction in 2017 in The Bolton News and had told her mother she had “a dark secret” and in 2018 she contacted the police.

In a victim impact statement read to court, the victim , who is now 20-years-old, said she suffered from anxiety and depression and was scared to leave the house on her own.

“My head is a dangerous place,” she wrote, before adding she would see “shadows in her room” and have suicidal thoughts.

Mr Johnson added that Cambrey had eight convictions for 15 offences including his nine year sentence in 2017 for four counts of indecently assaulting a girl under 14 and one of indecent assaulting a girl.

Richard English, defending, said Cambrey, who pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault of a child under 13, one count of causing a child to watch a sexual act, one count of causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity and one count of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child, was “very sorry” and did not wish to contest proceedings.

Sentencing Cambrey, Judge Graeme Smith, said the effect of the offences on the victim had been “very serious”.

He said he felt there was a high risk of Cambrey reoffending and he imposed a six year sentence to run consecutively to his current sentence with the defendant to serve a minimum of four years.
