[A] MAN who attacked a teenage girl, leaving her scarred and bloodied, has been handed a jail term.

Paul Robert Nicholson, 26, was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court today (WED). He had previously admitted assaulting the 15-year-old, causing her actual bodily harm, on July 26 last year.

Nicholson’s launched his sustained attack after he went with others to a pre-arranged meeting with the girl. This occurred at Kingmoor woods near Carlisle’s ASDA superstore.

He was said to have punched her two or three times near her eye. A selfie photo she took just after the assault showed “extensive blood” to the face, the court heard, while scarring was still present around seven months later.

The heavily convicted criminal – already serving a prison sentence for a previous burglary – was given a 22-month term. This must be served consecutively.

Judge Peter Davies said of the assault by Nicholson, of Bath Terrace, Penrith: “It was sustained, and it was mean and cowardly.”
