Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been jailed for child sex offences in Oxfordshire.

Ritin Parbat, aged 21, of Westville Road, Walsall, pleaded guilty on Friday (9/11) to sexual activity with a child at Oxford Crown Court and was sentenced to two years and three months’ imprisonment at the same hearing.

He was also given a sexual harm prevention order.

Parbat was charged on 5 September 2018 for multiple offences which occurred between March and May this year in Oxfordshire against one victim, a 14-year-old girl.

Ritin Parbat lured his victim with flattery, money and presents to establish a long-distance campaign of sexual abuse.

He was discovered when the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, went to her doctor to ask for the morning after pill.

Messages on Parbat’s phone revealed he was using gifts to try and impress the girl and continue the abuse.

After it was reported to the police, messages discovered on his phone showed how he aimed to win the affections of the child and impress her over three months at the beginning of the year.

Police also found a number of sex toys in Parbat’s possession with one showing a positive DNA match from the victim, reports the Oxford Mail. 

A police spokesperson said that Parbat contacted the girl through phone and text messages before travelling 84 miles from Walsall to Oxfordshire to abuse her.

When the investigation uncovered damning evidence, Parbat was left with no choice and admitted the offences at Oxford Crown Court.

Parbat, of Westville Road, Walsall, was jailed for two years and three months and handed a sexual harm prevention order (SHPO). It is now hoped his young victim can recover from the abuse and trauma suffered during her ordeal, police said
