Three men jailed after teenage girl sexually exploited and injected with heroin


A teenage girl who was injected with heroin and crack cocaine was “groomed, trafficked, drugged and sexually exploited”

Three men from Gravesend have been jailed for a total of 14 years, one of whom had sex with the underage girl.

In court, a judge heard how 23-year-old Belo Laczko met the teenager in 2014, when he befriended her.

He introduced the girl to his cousin, 21-year-old Alex Kroka, who in turn took her to 27-year-old Peter Jarosinec’s house. Here, the young girl was injected with class A drugs on several occasions.

Belo Laczko  aged 23, of Truro Road, Gravesend, was sentenced to six years in jail after pleading guilty to three counts of engaging in penetrative sexual activity with a girl, one count of intent to pervert the course of justice and one count of causing a child to look at a sexual image. He was also given a sexual harm prevention order for 15 years and was put on the sex offenders’ register for life.


Peter Jarosinec  aged 27, of no fixed address, was given six years in jail after pleading guilty to three counts of administering poison with intent to endanger life or inflict grievous bodily harm and one count of permitting the use of premises for the supply of heroin.


Alex Kroka  aged 21, of Havelock Road, Gravesend, pleaded guilty to one count of being concerned in the supply of a Class A drug and was jailed for two years.


The trio appeared before a judge at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday 24 June.
