A Ramsgate paedophile who incited a seven-year-old boy to engage in sexual activity has been jailed for seven years.

Aaron Knight, who had previously changed his name from Grant Spain by deed poll, was sentenced at Canterbury Crown Court on May 23, where he was also issued with a sexual harm prevention order after admitting the offences put to him.

Knight systematically groomed his young victim over a period of time between September 2013 and October 2014.

On several occasions he made the boy engage in sexual activity with him and warned the young child that the boy’s mother would tell him off if he were to tell anyone ‘their secret.’

After admitting two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and one count of sexual assault on a child under 13, unemployed Knight was jailed to a total of seven years in prison.
