A Brit was last week jailed in Asia for bedding a 13-year-old girl he met over the Web. Insurance exec Toby Acton was nailed in Hong Kong. He got 14 months for luring the Lolita wannabe to a hotel in the city’s sleazy Wan Chai district. Acton used his office PC to woo the girl via an Internet chat line, according to the Daily Mail. Hong Kong’s Eastern Court heard the girl had "participated willingly", using a provocative log-on name in Cyberspace. Acton was transferred from Liverpool to Hong Kong with his company Griffiths and Armour in 1997. But now he's lost his job. Acton's loyal wife, twice the age of his Won Ton lover, was said to be "standing by" him. More fool her.®
