No jail for teen attacker.

A TEENAGE sex beast has avoided a jail sentence despite attacking a woman in a Midland street.

Ashley Baker was instead handed a term of six months' detention - suspended for two years.

Passing sentence, Judge John Warner told Baker: "You are clearly a very immature young man."

Baker, 19, of Keats Road, The Scotlands, Wolverhampton, admitted sexual assault.

He was also placed on the RSex Offenders' Register for seven years and told he must be under supervision for two years.

Julian Elcock, prosecuting, told Wolverhampton Crown Court that Baker used vulgar language before carrying out the sexual assault, which left the 41-year-old victim badly shaken.

Mr Elcock said she kicked out at the teenager before hiding in an office where police were alerted.

Michael Anning, defending, said that Baker's "lonely life had created the discontent that sparked the offence".
