Medway bus stop paedophile, 26, who groomed children on social media

A Medway man has been jailed after grooming a child on social media before having sex with her.

Jordan Randall, now 26, of Charles Drive, approached his victims at a bus stop in Chatham in early 2016 before having sexualised conversations with her on social media.

Despite knowing her age, Randall later incited his victim to engage in sexual activity.

The incident was reported to Kent Police in July 2016 and following an investigation, officers found he had used the same technique to exchange sexual images with a different victim earlier in the year.

Appearing at Canterbury Crown Court, Randall admitted two counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child, two counts of inciting sexual activity with a child and one count of possessing indecent images of a child.

He was jailed for five years.
