Man Jailed For Grooming Teen

An illegal immigrant has been jailed for three years for grooming a Harpenden 13 year old.

Ismail Kiggundu, 29, of Commonside East, Mitcham, encouraged the teenager to send him naked photographs of herself and persuaded her to travel from her home to his room in Surrey to have sex. 

He met her through an over 18s dating site called Tagged, where he told her he was 19. 

Even though he knew she was under-age he continued the relationship and encouraged her to bunk off school to see him. 

Kiggundu pleaded guilty to meeting a child following sexual grooming and two counts of sexual activity with a child at St Albans Crown Court. 

He has also been banned from working with children, placed on the sex offenders register for life and will be deported to Uganda once let out of prison.
