A pervert groomed two 14-year-old schoolgirls on Facebook, having sex with one of them while the other was pregnant with his child.

Sick Daniel Thomas, 24, has been jailed for 10 years after pestering the girls on social media to share naked selfie pictures and having sex with them both.

A court heard he then went on to have sex with the schoolgirls despite a formal warning from police to stay away.

Prosecutor Craig Jones said: “He befriended and had sexual intercourse with both children.

“One girl’s mother tried to stop contact between them. Police issued an abduction notice, which forbade Thomas from having more contact with her daughter.

“But this man had impregnated her and she underwent a termination at hospital.”

Thomas invited the second girl to his house in Llandrindod Wells, Wales, around the same time the first girl was having her termination.

Mr Jones said: “They smoked cannabis together. She began to feel tired. It was then that they started touching and then had sexual intercourse.”

Thomas was arrested in November 2015 in relation to the first schoolgirl but denied the sexual relationship.

He was again arrested in the December when allegations about the second girl came to light, which he again denied.

Cardiff Crown Court heard police found 17 indecent images of one of the girls in “various stages of undress” in a computer folder named “well well”.

He pleaded guilty before his trial to seven counts of sexual activity with a child, inciting a child to engage in sexual intercourse, possession indecent photographs of a child and possession of cannabis.

Judge Thomas Crowther QC said Thomas had been arrested over a “very similar scenario” with another teenager just weeks before he met the two 14-year-old girls.

Judge Crowther told Thomas: “You had effectively been warned off, but you simply continued thinking only of yourself and your pleasure.

“Whatever your level of maturity, you have an adult sexual appetite.”

Thomas was jailed for 10 years, and given restraining orders against his two victims as well as a sexual harm prevention order
