Cumbrian man guilty of sex assaults on schoolgirl

A 59-year-old Cleator Moor man has been found guilty of sexually abusing a schoolgirl.

Michael White, of Trumpet Terrace, had denied 13 sex assaults against two schoolgirls dating back to the 1970s and 1980s.

After a trial at Carlisle Crown Court, he was cleared of five allegations of indecent assault against the first of the two girls.

The jury cleared him of one count of indecent assault against the second child, but found him guilty of the remaining seven charges, all against that girl.

He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court on April 15.
