A BARROW man has been jailed after a jury found him guilty of one charge of knowingly having sex with a 15-year-old girl.
Kyle Hubbold, 25, of Rawlinson Street, Barrow, was found guilty today of one charge of sexual activity with a minor and not guilty to a second charge.
It follows a three day trial at Barrow-in-Furness Crown Court in which the girl said Hubbold invited her round to his flat where they had sex in 2011.
Hubbold admitted that he had had sex with the girl on one occasion but claimed she had told him she was 17. The girl said she told Hubbold her age was 15 the first time they met.
He was found not guilty of a second charge of having sexual activity with the same girl.
Judge Paul Batty QC sentenced Hubbold to three years in prison today and he was put on the Sex Offenders Register for life.
