A sex offender who was extradited from Tenerife has been found guilty of historic offences against a child.
Andrew Richard Logan, formerly of Clayton-le-Moors, was arrested on the Spanish island where he was living in May last year and brought back to the UK.
The 44-year-old pleaded not guilty to sexual assault, causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.
However, he was found guilty of all the offences, committed more than a decade ago, following a trial at Preston Crown Court.
Logan, who lived at San Miguel de Abona on the island, will appear at the court for sentence on February 26.
Speaking after the trial, Detective Inspector Julie Cross said: “He was arrested in Tenerife in May last year and then taken to Madrid and charged with numerous offences and following the trial has been convicted of all of them.
“Unfortunately they were only reported to us in 2009 and it’s taken a long time to reach the point were he could be brought back into the country.
“The victim had to give her account and evidence of the attacks, which isn’t the best thing and she did extremely well.
“Hopefully she will now be able to get some closure as a result of the verdicts and Logan will get a custodial sentence that merits the awful offences he committed.”
