Man pleads guilty to attempted kidnap and sexual assault of young girl in the Moorlands

A 39 year-old man has pleaded guilty to charges of attempted kidnap and sexual assault at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

Jonathan Stuart Corfield, of the Leek area, admitted the offences at a hearing today (28 November).

It follows an investigation by the Staffordshire Police's Child Protection and Exploitation Team into an incident involving an 11-year-old in Cheddleton in July this year.

Corfield was remanded in custody and will be sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court in January.
