Paedophile Jailed For Sexual Abuse Of Teen Girls

6th October 2020
News, Mansfield

A 20-year-old man has been jailed after threatening to expose two teenage girls if they didn't have sex with him.

Nathan Jones was sentenced to three years and 11 months at Nottingham Crown Court for seven counts of sexual offences with two victims under the age of 16.

He has been given a sexual harm prevention order and has been placed on the sex offences register indefinitely.

Jones, of Farm Croft Road in Mansfield Woodhouse, pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual activity with a child, two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and one count of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

The charges relate to a number of incidents between January and August in 2018 where he intentionally touched and engaged in sexual activity with the two teenage girls.

Jones threatened that if the victims spoke out he would post photos online humiliating them.

He was eventually blocked on social media by the victims and they contacted Childline, who passed on the details to the police.

Detective Constable Helen Sanders led the investigation. She said: "Jones was very controlling of both victims. 

“They found themselves in a position they couldn't get out of because if they refused, Jones threatened to expose their secrets and photos to the community. 

“Due to Jones’ persistence and increase in control they finally reached out for help and I’d like to praise them for doing so and for supporting this investigation throughout. 

“Their actions have helped to put the offender behind bars where he is unable to cause harm to anyone else. I hope that their bravery inspires other victims of violence and sexual abuse to come forward. 

“Contacting the police can be an extremely daunting thing to do, but please be assured, you will be met with specialist support and compassion.”
