A Birmingham emergency doctor has been jailed for engaging in online sex chats with a teenage girl.
Dr Timothy Evans, who worked at the Queen Elizabeth and Good Hope Hospitals as a registrar, encouraged the victim to reveal intimate parts of her body.
The 39 year old, from the Harbourne area of Birmingham was handed a two and a half year sentence and was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.
He's also been handed an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.
Police found that he'd set up a fake Skype profile and was using it to speak to a 13 year old girl back in February 2012.
Evans pleaded not guilty, but was convicted at Birmingham Crown Court in December 2018, and sentenced on Friday March 15 2019.
