A DAVENTRY man who had sex with an underage girl has been sent to a young of-fenders’ institution.
Appearing at Northampton Crown Court last week, Michael Davies, aged 20, admitted knowing that the girl was aged only 13 when they had consensual sexual intercourse in March.
Claire Howell, prosecuting said they met at a New Year’s Eve party when he was 19, and she told him her true age.
She said: “Towards the end of February, she split up with her boyfriend and at that point, she and the defendant started to spend more and more time together. They discussed being a couple but decided to wait. However, on March 11, they had sexual intercourse”.
Davies, of Admirals Way, Southbrook, Daventry, pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child. He was sentenced to 18 months’ detention and will now be on the sex offenders’ register for the next decade.
