Luton man jailed almost seven years for abusing teenage girl

A Luton man who sexually abused a teenage girl between October 2018 and March 2019 has been jailed for almost seven years

Thomas Brooks, 41, of Green Close, Luton, met his victim several times, plying her with drugs and alcohol before engaging in sexual activity with her.

Eventually, the girl told Brooks that she no longer wanted to meet up with him, but he continued to message her in an attempt to persuade her to have further meetings.

Brooks pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual activity with a child and was last week sentenced to six years and eight months in prison for each count.

These sentences will run concurrently.
