'Serious sexual offender' assaulted boy, 12, on Carlisle car park

A man branded a serious sexual offender has been told to expect a prison sentence after he admitted sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy.

Carlisle Crown Court heard that Darren Goode, 43, followed the victim around Carlisle city centre for 20 minutes on November 19 before clamping a hand over his mouth and assaulting him in a car park near West Walls.

Goode pleaded guilty to a charge of sexually assaulting a child under 13 and breaching a sexual offences prevention order.

Adjourning the sentencing until March 20, Judge Peter Hughes QC said: “He is a serious sexual offender with a high risk for boys and there’s no question that the sentence will be custodial.”

Goode, who was living at the John Street hostel in Carlisle at the time of the assault, was remanded in custody.

Should the number of calories in alcoholic drinks be put on labels?

Yes. You have calories on other food & drink labels, so why not?

Yes. But I doubt it will make much difference to the drinker
