A Chesterfield man who had sex with a 14-year-old girl has been jailed for four years.

Peter Garcia, 30, had consensual sex with the teenager at a house in Clowne in April 2011.

Garcia, of Coronation Road, Brimington, was arrested and charged with three counts of sexual activity with a female under 16.

He denied the offences but was found guilty by a jury at Derby Crown Court and sentenced to four years in prison following a hearing on Friday.

He must sign the sex offenders’ register indefinitely and has been disqualified from working with children.
