Her mother, concerned about the effect it was having on her child, Googled McCall’s name and found out about his previous sex offences. The police were called and the 41-year-old was arrested but denied the charges saying any allegation against him were “malicious”.

However, following three aborted attempts to try him in court, he finally pleaded guilty to breaching the terms of a sexual harm prevention order which forbade him from contacting anyone under the age of 16. Recorder Sandeep Kanith handed McCall a 10-month jail term, suspended for 18 months and ordered him to carry out 200 hours unpaid work. He told him: “The impact on this young girl was obvious to her mother.

She did not want to return to church because she feared you. “This is a spiritual place where people can go without fearing anyone like you that clearly had the wrong motive. What do I do with you?

“You deserve to go to prison because you have violated a court order. “But looking at the passage of time that has passed you have undertaken a number of courses in terms of your rehabilitation and I can move away from immediate custody.”

Lisa Hardy, prosecuting, said the offence took place in 2015 at a church in Derbyshire. She said the girl had been to a service with her parents and siblings and was in the kitchen when she felt a hand on her arm.

Miss Hardy said: “She was shocked, she turned around, he moved his hand down her arm and on to her waist. “There were no reasons for the defendant to go in the kitchen, “He deliberately followed the girl and he deliberately touched her.”

Miss Hardy said the effect of the incident on the girl was for her to tell her parents she no longer wished to go to that church. She said: “Her mother decided to Google the defendant’s name and found out about his past offences and the authorities were alerted.” Kevin Jones, for McCall, formerly of Chesterfield Road, Alfreton and now of South Street North, Chesterfield, said his client has pleaded guilty and by doing so “accepted exactly what the prosecution outlined” to the court.
