A 31-year-old man has been jailed for sexual activity with a young teenager after text messages were discovered highlighting a relationship between the pair.
The victim’s phone was confiscated by her father in March this year when he became concerned about her behaviour.
The father found a conversation between her and Hesketh Watts, who messaged her about having had sex. The father reported this to the police and Watts was arrested on March 22.
Officers seized his mobile devices which confirmed the text message conversation with the victim.
When arrested, Watts was in possession of cannabis, scales and deal bags.
