A HORRIFIED mum walked into her daughter’s bedroom to find the 13-year-old schoolgirl in bed with a 20-year-old man, Lincoln Crown Court was told.
Roy Anderson, 20, was jailed for 30 months and placed on the sex offenders’ register for life after admitting two charges of sexual activity with a child.
The court was told the mum had decided to investigate after hearing laughing and giggling coming from the girl’s room.
Jeremy Jaines, prosecuting, said the mother was shocked when she walked into the room to find her daughter in bed with Anderson.
He said: “The mother was somewhat gobsmacked by what she saw. The defendant and her daughter both had their clothes on but were in what could be described as a compromising position. He was between her legs although they were not actually having sex.”
After Anderson left, the mum checked her daughter’s diary and discovered an entry which revealed the schoolgirl had lost her virginity to Anderson a few days earlier.
Mr Jaines said: “The girl was asked about the entry and said it was correct.
“She said she had sex with Anderson on two occasions. It occurred in her own bedroom. The first occasion was when her parents were out shopping at Asda late at night.”
Later the girl feared she was pregnant after a home testing kit appeared to show a positive result, but an ultrasound scan and two blood tests revealed her fears were unfounded.
Anderson was living in Grantham at the time of the offences but now lives in Ranglon Road, Bromley, Kent.
He was banned from making any contact with the girl or her family.
Judge Sean Morris told him “Your victim was a child of just 13 years of age at the time. You knew this was wrong and you knew her age.
“Young girls need protecting and the courts will protect them. Very often they need protecting from themselves.”
Jonathon Dee, defending, said: “This was a relationship between a young 20-year-old and a 13-year-old who wanted to be older than she was.
“There was no force or coercion used.”
He said that Anderson’s girlfriend ended their relationship after the offences came to light.
Speaking to the Journal this week, the victim’s mother said: “We were unhappy in the family home and my daughter was getting tormented at school, so we’ve ended up moving, but this has actually brought us closer.”
