Man avoids prison after grooming and having sexual activity with child


A 19-year-old man from Littlehampton has been found guilty of grooming a female child for sex

Aston Frost was found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child.

Chichester Crown Court was told that Frost had broke a child abduction order when he continued to meet the girl after her parents had tried everything to stop the contact.

On one occasion the police had to remove the girl from Frost’s flat after he had got her high on cannabis.

On a separate occasion when the police visited him at his flat, two other young schoolgirls were found

Even after the police weer involved, Frost still contacted the girl, which resulted in her becoming pregnant at 15.

Aston Frost was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment which was suspended for 2 years and was told he must complete 30 hours rehabilitation activity

A sexual Harm Prevention Order was made and he was also told he must register as a sex offender for a period of seven years
