David Nwosu has been jailed for more than six years

A man from Birmingham who befriended a teenage girl on Snapchat – before sexually abusing her and her friend – has been jailed for more than six years.

Twenty-six-year-old David Nwosu – who was already subject to multiple Sexual Harm Prevention Orders – added the victim on the social media platform in October 2020.

He asked her to meet him in his home city of Birmingham but she declined – instead inviting him to her home in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

Three days later, Nwosu travelled to Leicestershire, buying alcohol en-route, where he immediately began to make the victim – aged 15 – feel uncomfortable.

Her friend, also aged 15, went to the address a short time later and Nwosu continued giving them alcohol. He even left to go and buy more, but did not drink himself.

He then engaged in sexual activity with both girls inside the address before leaving and returning to Birmingham that afternoon.

The mother of one of the victims called Nwosu and he provided a fake name and age. The matter was reported to police and Nwosu was arrested on 1 December, 2020.

During hearings at Leicester Crown Court in February and April this year, Nwosu – of Langford Grove, Harborne – pleaded guilty to five counts of breach of Sexual Harm Prevention Order, four counts of sexual activity with a child, and one count of sending a letter/electronic communication/article with intent to cause distress or anxiety – which relates to providing a false name and age

On Friday, 17 June at the same court, Nwosu was sentenced to a total of 76 months’ imprisonment.

He is also subject to an additional 10-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and told he must serve an extended period on licence of 24 months.
