Man who had sex with girl, 14, in the back of his car in Blackburn is jailed

A MAN who had sex with a 14-year-old girl in the back of his car has been jailed.

Burnley Crown Court heard how Daniel Rakestraw, 23, had sex with the teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, a number of times at locations in Blackburn after police found videos of the pair on her mobile phone.

Prosecuting Jeremy Grout-Smith said the relationship only came to light on May 11 when police noticed the girl sat in the front seat of Rakestraw’s Volkswagen Jetta in Montague Street, Blackburn, and decided to investigate because of how young she looked.
