A man from Barking in Essex, has been jailed after admitting sexual activity with a child in Milton Keynes.
Darius Agar, 21, of Kier Hardie Way in Barking has been sentenced to three years and four months’ imprisonment for sexual activity with a child under 16 between 21 February 2013 and 30 June 2014.
Aylesbury Crown Court heard Agar, then 19, posed as a 16 year-old when he committed the offence in Milton Keynes.
Agar was also placed on the Sexual Offenders Register indefinitely, made the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for five years and ordered not to contact the victim or to have unsupervised contact with anyone under 16.
He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £120.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Kim McHugh of Force CID based at Milton Keynes Police Station, said:
"Agar lied about his age to facilitate his offending, which is an obvious aggravating factor in this case. It is a positive result that he is now behind bars and no longer a risk to young people.
It is thanks to the bravery of the victim that Agar has been brought to justice. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her and her family for their ongoing support throughout the investigation."
