A sick and twisted teenage boy repeatedly raped a 12-year-old girl. Jack Simpson aged 18 has now been sentenced to 12 months in a young offenders institution after he admitted raping the girl.
It is claimed the girl consented, however, the judge stressed that because the girl was too young for the sex consensual.
Simpson meet and groomed the girl through Facebook in September 2014 and met with each other a month later. He began sleeping with her aged 16 and 17 however at all times he was aware she was just 12-years-old.
They continued having sex for the next four months at various locations. Social workers became suspicious and warned Simpson to stay away. The girl claimed they were just good friends.
However, their suspicions were confirmed when the victim visited a sexual heath clinic in August asking for emergency contraception.
During this, she made a disclosure that she had a relationship with Simpson.
They alerted the police due to the age of the girl. She claims the sex stop once Simpson had been warned by social services.
Simpson, of Barnoldswick, Lancashire, admitted raping a child under the age of 13 on the basis the sex was consensual.
He accepted it had happened frequently but denied it happened every time they met.
Simpson has now been ordered to sign the Sex Offender’s Register for 10 years and made subject to a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order which limits his contact with children.
