Paedophile sent to jail for sexually assaulting three children

A 25-year-old man has been sent to prison after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting three children.

Christopher Hunt, of Paige Close in Sibsey, was sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court on 14 August after taking and distributing indecent images of children and sexual activity with a child.

He was sentenced to 27 months in prison.

Officers began their investigation when police were shown evidence that Hunt had recorded a sex act with a victim.

Hunt had also disclosed in an online chat to a friend that he had engaged in sexual activity with an underage girl 

Officers traced the victims and gathered evidence, resulting in a successful prosecution last week.

Hunt was also placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years and was given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for a period of 10 years.
