Marc Baker has been jailed for four years


A man who had sex with a Hatfield teenager who was half his age was jailed for four years.

Marc Baker, 33, had given the girl alcohol and pizza when she and friends, who he had met outside a pub, had visited his home on earlier occasions.

On the day they had sex, the 14-year-old had been drinking at his home and felt unwell, St Albans Crown Court heard on Friday, March 11.

She went to lie down on his bed. He joined her and asked for oral sex. She refused, but felt “obliged” to have full sex with him.

Afterwards Baker told the girl not to say anything about what happened.

Baker, of Downsfield, Hatfield, was convicted by a jury of having sexual activity with a child.
