Pervert jailed after he groomed schoolgirl for sex

A pervert has been jailed after he groomed a schoolgirl for sexual activity.

Security guard Raymond Reeves, 31 of North Tonbridge, appeared before Maidstone crown court where he admitted a number of sexual offences against a 13-year-old girl:

  • Four counts of sexual activity with a child

  • Three counts of taking an indecent photograph of a child

The offences took place over a three year period beginning in 2011 

The court allowed one count of child rape to be left on file.

The court was told that Reeves was 26-years-old when he began grooming the 13-year-old girl for sex. 

Repeated sexual abuse took place over the next three years, involving sexual activity and taking indecent images of the child.

Reeves was sentenced to two consecutive sentences which totaled eight years, however it is likely that he would serve just two years and eight months

He must also register as a sex offender for life and was banned from using any device that could be used to access the internet
