A chef has been jailed for 20 months after he admitted sexually touching an eight-year-old girl and possessing indecent images of children.

Marcello Delima, 44, of Old Millstones, Preston, committed the offence while the youngster was staying over at his wife’s house last December – and then blamed the child.

Preston Crown Court heard how the girl played with the couple’s two-year-old son, before the boy and his mother fell asleep after dinner.

Delima, who is originally from Brazil, then asked the girl to sit beside him while he used his laptop computer and touched her sexually.

Robert Galinsky, prosecuting, said the child was “terrified” by the ordeal.
