Paedophile to sue victim, 7

A PAEDOPHILE is planning on suing his seven-year-old victim despite admitting sexually assaulting her and being sentenced, a court heard.

John Thompson, 61, was spared jail in July this year after he insisted he was unable to fight off the young girl, claiming that she “flirted” with him, pinned him to a bed and forced her tongue into his mouth.

He was given an eight-month suspended sentence, provoking condemnation from child protection officials who called his claims “outrageous” and said he should have been jailed.
