A Sonning man, Nicholas Faithfull of Glebe Gardens has been jailed for three years for pressuring young school girls into having sex with him. The  paedophile was sentenced to jail for a string of sex offences.

The twenty-year-old Faithfull  has modelled himself on Justin Bieber, his school friends said. Allegedly, he forced one school girl to masturbate him in a churchyard. H was also accused of forcing other girls to engage in sexual activities with him.

According to getreading, he is charged with 7 counts of an offender over 18 years engaging in penetrative sexual activity with a 13-15-year-old girl and one count of an offender over 18 years engaging in non-penetrative sexual act with a child. Five minor girls were victims of this sex predator.

Faithfull said that he did not know the victims’ age but evidence showed that he sent one of the victims a 15th birthday card. Thus, his actions were considered as predatory by the judge.

The prosecutor, Isabel Delamere, said that the paedophile pressured girls to engage with him in sexual acts by consistently messaging them via phone text or social media.

She said, “the course of conduct ran from the summer of 2013 up until the beginning on 2015. The matters began in summer 2013 with the defendant contacting one of the victims on Facebook.”

She continued, “There was a New Year’s kiss and he then moved into one of the girl’s family home and into her room and into her bed.”

“There was constant texting and pressure [from the defendant]. One of the girls said that you were not considered popular if you did not know the defendant,” Delamere added.

After being found guilty of the sex offences, Faithfull was forced to move to his grandparents’ residence in Glebe Garden, Sonning, as his parent’s residence in Reading was near a school and police thought him to be a treat to the school girls.

The sex offender’s lawyer, on the other hand, said that the offender was immature at the time when he committed the sex crimes, Mirror reported.

After his sentencing, one of his school friends revealed that Faithfull always loved the dark side of Justine Bieber. They also noticed that Faithfull started imitating Bieber when the singer was in his bad boy stage.
