A man has been sentenced to a total of four years’ imprisonment and a further three years’ on extended license for arranging sexual offences with a child following an investigation by the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU).
Jason Allington, aged 41, of New Street, West Bromwich, Birmingham pleaded guilty to a single count of arranging to commit a sexual act with a child at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday (1/11).
Allington was arrested at Fishermead, Milton Keynes following an intelligence led investigation on 10 April and charged on 7 September.
On Thursday (1/11), Allington was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment, and a further three years’ on extended license for the single offence at Aylesbury Crown Court. He was also placed on the Sex Offenders register for life and will have a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 10 years upon his release from prison.
Detective Inspector Emily Evans, from SEROCU, said: “This forms part of our continued priority to protect children from sexual exploitation from those who seek to do them harm. The sentence reflects the seriousness of the offences Jason Allington had attempted to commit.
“If anyone has been a victim of child sexual abuse, I would urge you to report it to your local police force via 101. We will always follow up allegations of abuse, no matter when they occurred. Victims can talk in confidence to experienced investigators and we can also help them get access to a range of other support services.”
