A PERVERT from Stratford who exchanged indecent photos with a young girl has been jailed for two-and-a-half years.
Isaac Bramble, 23, contacted the girl online when she was only 13-years-old in November 2020.
After chatting normally for a month, the conversation became sexual.
The victim told Bramble she was only 13-years-old, and he carried on regardless – in fact, he said he liked the fact she was so young.
Over the next year Bramble sent nude images to the victim and got her to send explicit images to him.
Bramble told the victim he lived in Stratford and that he worked in a shop and a bar.
Police launched an investigation when the victim’s brother reported concerns.
Appearing at court Warwick Crown Court last week Bramble was jailed after pleading guilty to two counts of inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity.
Bramble, of Greenhill Street, was also given a ten year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
Detective Constable Leanne Ganley from Warwickshire Police CID said: “Bramble is a dangerous man who has deliberately exploited a vulnerable young girl.
“Thanks to the bravery of the victim and her family we have been able to put him behind bars where he belongs.
“Investigations of this type are complex, but we will do everything we can to protect young people from harm and bring offenders to justice.
“If you are a victim of a sexual offence, please know that you are not alone and there are people who can help you.
“Please speak to us – no matter who the offender is, or when the abuse occurred, we have specially trained officers to help you and make sure you get the justice you deserve.”
Anyone who has been a victim of a sexual offence can report it to police on 101. Those in immediate danger should dial 999.
