A WIGAN child abuser has been jailed for nine and a half years after getting a schoolgirl pregnant.
A court heard that Lucas Hojka first began having sex with the girl when she was just 11 years old when they both lived in Poland and it later continued after they separately moved to England.
Jailing 25-year-old Hojka, who pleaded guilty to 10 rape offences and five of sexual activity with a child, Judge David Aubrey, QC, said the victim had been “extremely vulnerable”.
He said: “There was an element of grooming in this case which permitted you to continue having sex with her on a number of occasions.”
He said that the girl had been “infatuated” with Hojka and sometimes consented to sex and on other occasions acquiesced. The fact that he got her pregnant was an extremely aggravating factor, said Judge Aubrey.
He ordered Hojka, of Belle Green Lane, Ince, to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and imposed an indefinite Sexual Offences Prevention Order banning unsupervised contact with girls under 16.
Arthur Gibson, prosecuting, told Liverpool Crown Court that Hojka is about 10 years older than his victim. The offences began in Poland when she was 11 and he kissed her and told her he loved her. “She was clearly bowled over and became infatuated with him.”
She started meeting him instead of going to school and eventually agreed to his request for sex and this took place on about another 10 occasions always without contraception. Sometimes it was consensual and sometimes because he otherwise threatened to tell her mum.
“She became a ‘bad kid’ and started drinking. As a result a decision was made to bring her to the UK to live with relatives. She came with her mother and there was no contact with the defendant for three years,” he said.
In 2013 Hojka and his partner moved to the UK and the offending re-commenced and again he threatened to tell her mother. On the last occasion she became pregnant and she had a termination earlier this year. The police became involved and she revealed what had happened, including saying on two occasions he had hit her.
These involved him once slapping her face and once punching her in the stomach while she was pregnant.
When arrested and interviewed Hojka refused to answer questions, said Mr Gibson.
