Erdington paedophile jailed after grooming and sexually abusing schoolgirl

A sex predator from Birmingham that groomed and then sexually abused a 14-year-old girl has been jailed after the brave victim spoke out.

Nicholas Pearmain, of Kings Road, Erdington, groomed his victim over a period of time before going on to sexually abuse her, Northampton Crown Court heard.

Though the 24-year-old never admitted his crimes and failed to comment, officers were able to prove what he had done using forensics, police said.

Pearmain was sentenced to five years and three months in prison and given an extended licence for four years.

He was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register and given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) with indefinite notification requirements.
