A DANGEROUS paedophile who groomed a Huddersfield schoolgirl on Facebook and then drove hundreds of miles so he could sexually abuse her in West Yorkshire has been given a 15-year extended prison sentence.
And Mark Pullin said he was willing to be chemically castrated but the judge said he had no power to order such radical treatment.
Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday how Mark Pullin’s latest victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was driven to a secluded location, locked in his car and sexually assaulted.
After forcing the 15-year-old to perform a sexual act on him Pullin threw £90 at the girl and told her get out.
The 45-year-old told the youngster to keep her mouth shut and said the police would think she was a prostitute because he had given her money.
Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC said the innocent victim had suffered horribly since her ordeal in April last year.
He said the youngster’s life had descended into isolation, she was scared to go out and had self-harmed.
“You have, as you appreciate in your letter, abused a totally innocent and vulnerable victim,” the judge told Pullin.
The court heard that Pullin, of Seymour Road, Bristol, had previously been made the subject of a five-year risk of sexual harm order in Worthing after he had sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl he met through an internet chat-room.
He had also tried to have sex with another 15-year-old girl in a public toilet in Eastbourne.
Prosecutor Patricia Doherty said after breaching the risk order twice Pullin was eventually jailed for 27 months in 2009.
The court heard that Pullin, whose middle name is Thomas, used the name Mark Thomas to contact the Huddersfield teenager at the beginning of 2011.
In April last year he drove up to Huddersfield and picked up the girl and one of her friends before driving to a secluded area.
When the other girl got out to use her mobile phone Pullin locked the doors and threatened to drive away with his victim unless she performed a sex act on him.
During the girl’s ordeal Pullin also touched her breast under her clothing.
After dumping the girl Pullin contacted her by phone saying she would get into trouble if she went to the police.
