Man appears at Southampton Crown Court for recording sex video
A man filmed an underage girl having sex during one of his “idiot moments”.
Kyle McGhee filmed a 15-year-old girl having sex, a court heard.
He went on to show the video to four people and was said to be proud of what he had done.
Prosecution barrister, Michael Forster told how the girl later asked for him to delete the footage.
During a police interview, McGhee of Bull Lane in Minstead admitted filming the video.
Mr Forster said that he even claimed: “She was loving it and it was just a laugh. It was one of my idiot moments.”
Aged 17 at the time of the incident, the hospitality worker was initially arrested on suspicion of rape but not charged.
Instead McGhee, now 20, was charged with taking an indecent photograph of a child – to which he pleaded guilty.
Defending, John Dyer cited his client’s background mentioning he born with foetal drug syndrome – impacting his cognitive abilities – and was adopted.
He emphasised McGhee’s immaturity at the time and how long the offence – which happened in Romsey on July 1, 2018 – took to reach the courts.
His previous convictions include three counts of assault by beating and one count of using threatening and abusive language.
He also has drug and driving convictions.
At Southampton Crown Court, Judge Nicholas Rowland jailed him for 15-months, suspended for 18-months.
He will have to complete 40 days of rehabilitation activities and 150 hours of unpaid work.
