A MAN’S sexual relationship with a 14-year old girl was only discovered after she went to her GP asking for emergency contraceptives.

Ritin Parbat, of Westville Road, Walsall, carried out the sexual abuse of the north Oxfordshire girl - who cannot be named for legal reasons - on multiple occasions at the start of this year.

The 21-year old was jailed at a sentencing hearing at Oxford Crown Court on Friday having admitted one count of sexual activity with a child.

Detailing the case, prosecutor Charles Ward-Jackson said that the multiple incidents of sexual abuse first came to light after the victim went to see a doctor about getting the morning after pill.

After it was reported to police, officers went on to find numerous text exchanges between Parbat and his victim asking the child to perform sex acts on him as well as discussing having had unprotected sex.

Police also found a number of sex toys in Parbat’s possession with one showing a positive DNA match from the victim after analysis.

In mitigation at the sentencing hearing Guy Wyatt said that his client had no previous convictions and many had written highly of him in character references prepared for the court.

He urged the court for leniency and said that many of the text messages showed ‘genuine expressions of emotional affection on his part’ for the girl.

Sentencing, Judge Peter Ross said: “Some of the messages have an element of grooming, more than the expression of purely affection.

“You were a third older than her, there is a huge gulf in maturation between the age of 14 and 21.

“Over the period on the indictment you engaged in a significant and frequent sexual relationship with this young woman – a girl, and the sex was either unprotected it would appear, or at times protection used and failed.”

Parbat was jailed for 27 months and must pay a victim surcharge and be subject to a sexual harm prevention order.
