Woman had sex with schoolgirl

A woman who had sex with a 14-year-old schoolgirl was caught when cops discovered a video of the pair half naked on her phone.

Indianna Northcott was 19 when she started the relationship with the young girl during which they posed together for kissing selfies.

The images and dozens of suggestive texts were found on the younger girl’s phone after her parents became alarmed by the relationship and called in the cops.

Northcott, now aged 21, initially told officers that nothing sexual had taken place between them but was forced to admit her guilt after the video and images were found.

One clip showed Northcott, naked from the waist up, rolling around a bed with the girl who was wearing just a thong and t-shirt.

Northcott, of Torquay, Devon, admitted two counts of sexual activity with a child and was ordered to do 40 days rehabilitation activities by Recorder Rufus Taylor at Exeter Crown Court.

He also ordered her to sign the sex offenders’ register.

Prosecutor Peter Coombe said the girl’s parents became worried when she claimed to be visiting friends but in fact spent the night with Northcott.

They called the police who issued Northcott with a formal warning but she carried on seeing the girl until they fell out in 2015 and the girl called her mother from a carnival and complained of sexual abuse.

She made a statement to the police, which she later withdrew, but also handed over a phone which she thought was broken.

Cops found selfies showing the girl and Northcott kissing and a video clip of them in bed together.

Mr Coombe said:”It showed them kissing while lying on a bed and rolling around.

“Northcott was under the covers but naked from the waist up. The girl was on top in a t-shirt and thong.

“The images showed the defendant with her hand on the girl’s buttock while she was wearing a thong. One text message from Northcott said “you are mine and have been for over a year”.
