Cambridgeshire paedophile jailed thanks to brave teenage girl he abused

A Cambridgshire paedophile who groomed and sexually assaulted a teenage girl five times has been jailed after his brave victim went to the police.

Adrian Livermore, 55, of Leechcroft, Fenstanton sent his victim text messages asking if he could perform a sex act on her and also requested a photo of her in her underwear

Police said over the same timeframe Livermore “sexually touched the girl in South Cambs on different occasions in March and April 2018”.

After Livermore was jailed at Cambridge Crown Court today, a spoksperson for Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: “On the first occasion, he also asked her for a kiss but she declined.

“He told her he knew it was wrong but added, ‘I just can’t help it’.”

Police said the offences only came to light when the messages were discovered by someone close to the girl and Livermore was arrested.

The girl confided in officers that she thought Livermore touching her was inappropriate and felt frightened of what he might do next.

She added the encounters with him made her feel uncomfortable, but she didn’t tell anyone about the grooming as she was scared of Livermore.

In interview, Livermore gave a prepared statement denying the sexual assaults and making no mention of the contact between them. He then answered ‘no comment’ to all questions.

However, at Cambridge Crown Court on 13 August, Livermore pleaded guilty to five counts of engaging in sexual activity with a girl aged 13-15 and one count of causing or inciting a girl aged 13-15 to engage in sexual activity.”

Livermore was sentenced at the same court today, Thursday, Septemver 23 where he was handed a one year and six months prison sentence.

He was also handed a 10-year restraining order preventing him from contacting the victim and a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) for the same timeframe to monitor his future behaviour.
