Man performed sex act in front of girl, 8

A LANCASTER man performed a sex act while in the same room as an eight-year-old girl, a court has heard.

Preston Crown Court heard Glen McLoughlin, 38, of Highmount Court, Lancaster, directed the act towards another girl, 17, who was also in the room.

McLoughlin was in court for sentencing having earlier pleaded guilty to a charge of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child under 16.

Charles Brown, prosecuting, said the defendant called at a Lancaster address in March last year, asking for the householder, or her boyfriend.

He was told they were out but later returned and walked straight into the living room, asking for the couple and sitting down opposite the 17-year-old girl.

She rang for the householder and told McLoughlin he should leave.
