More jail for fake porn actor from Doncaster

Mark Lindsay

A businessman from Doncaster who pretended to be a porn star to seduce a 13-year-old girl has received another jail term.

Mark Lindsay was originally arrested as part of a North Yorkshire Police investigation into a child sexual exploitation ring that resulted in 10 men being jailed for a total of 34 years in May last year.

Lindsay, aged 33, got four-and-a-half years after he admitted meeting a child for sexual purposes, having sexual activity with a child, and meeting a child following sexual grooming on an internet dating website.

Following his arrest, his DNA was later matched with a sample taken at the scene of a sex attack in Doncaster market place on February 24, 2010.

It led to him being brought from prison to Sheffield Crown Court where he admitted sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman.

Jailing him for a further 33 months, Mr Justice Griffith Williams told him: “But for that offending you would not have been brought to justice for this offence.”

David Hall, prosecuting, said Lindsay found the woman in a distressed state, sitting on a stall and crying in the empty market place at 10pm. He tried to comfort her and ask what was wrong and, although he was polite, she felt uncomfortable.

Lindsay then went to walk away but turned back, made a sexual comment and exposed himself.

Mr Hall said of the victim: “She was terrified and frozen with fear. She thought she was going to be raped.”

Lindsay then performed a sex act on himself before quickly walking away.

A DNA sample was collected and a description circulated, but Lindsay escaped justice until he was arrested by North Yorkshire Police on May 30, 2012, over the other matter. His DNA sample was found to match that taken from the market place.

Lindsay was living in Grasby, near Grimsby, at the time of his arrest.

He admitted the Doncaster sex assault.

His 33-month jail term will run from this week alongside his other sentence.
