A man from Sheffield has been lock up for a vicious sex attack on a young girl in woodland back in 2010.

22 year old Jordan Padley, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court today to be sentenced for a serious sexual assault he committed on a teenage girl in 2010. 

In November, 2010, Padley seriously, sexually assaulted a 14 year old girl in a wooded area, locally known as 'The Quarry', in the Fox Hill area of Sheffield. 

There was a massive manhunt, and thanks to the victim, police were able to issue and E-fit and following a Crimewatch appeal over 20 names were given to police.

But not one of them was Jordan Padley.  

Following further fresh information, Padley was arrested, charged and remanded in January, this year. 

He pleaded guilty to two charges of serious sexual assault by penetration and a charge of inciting sexual activity with a child at Sheffield Crown Court.

Detective Inspector Phil Etheridge who led the investigation said: “An innocent young girl has had to go through an horrendous ordeal, and has been left traumatised, by Padley’s actions.  

“A thorough investigation was conducted to identify and locate this man with additional assistance from BBC Crimewatch and also from the local community in Fox Hill. The sentence he has been given reflects the serious nature of the assault, and it will hopefully give some closure to the young victim and aid her to try and move on with her life.”
