Aaron Kitney, of Nettlebed Mead, Oxford, pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual activity with a child at Oxford Crown Court last month.

The 29-year old abused his victim, who was aged under 16 at the time of the offences, between July and December last year in various locations in Abingdon and Oxford.

Kitney was remanded in custody on May 3 while pre-sentence reports were prepared but Judge Ian Pringle QC warned him to expect an 'immediate prison sentence'.
