A Winsford man has been jailed for four years after admitting having sex with a child and making incident images of children.
Liam Martin, 25, of Kingsway, Winsford, pleaded guilty at Chester Crown Court to five counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child under 16 in 2011 and making indecent images of children.
In a separate incident Martin’s phone was checked by police officers as part of his release conditions for a previous conviction for a child sex offence and the check uncovered a total of 271 category C images of children.
Detective Constable Dave Walton said: “Martin tried to make the girl feel like they were in a relationship but in reality he was using her for his own sexual gratification.
“Her bravery in coming forward means that Martin is now behind bars.”
