Jay Mitchell-Moores, 18, of Birkbeck Road in Newbury Park, jailed for sex with 13-year-old girl
A teenager who filmed himself having sex with a 13-year-old girl has been jailed for nine months.
Jay Mitchell-Moores, 18, of Birkbeck Road in Newbury Park, was caught when the father of the girl returned home to find them in bed together.
He called police but when officers arrived at the house, in Barking, the girl and Mitchell-Moores claimed nothing had happened.
But the father remained suspicious and contacted officers again when he discovered explicit messages from Mitchell-Moores which had been sent to his daughter online.
A police raid of Mitchell-Moores's home then found explicit videos and images of the girl.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a child and was jailed for nine months for each offence at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday.
The sentences will run concurrently.
Detective Constable Monir Nainia, of the Met's Sapphire unit, said: "Jay Mitchell-Moores is a sexual predator who took advantage of a child and exploited her for his gratification.
"I would like to praise the victim and her family for their courage in supporting this investigation and Mitchell-Moores guilty plea indicates the wealth of evidence against him."
