A pervert who exchanged indecent text messages with a 15 year old schoolgirl he befriended has been jailed for 12 months.

Jeffrey Ainsbury had been banned from contacting young girls as a result of an order made in 2005, but befriended the teenager after meeting her while he was working in a shop.

The messages that went between the two of them included conversations that were not appropriate in any shape or form to be having with a 15 year old girl. They were relating to sexual behaviour

Prosecutor Christopher Geeson

Christopher Geeson, prosecuting, told Lincoln Crown Court that Ainsbury befriended the girl during the school holidays and they communicated via the WhatsApp messaging service.

Mr Geeson said: “The messages that went between the two of them included conversations that were not appropriate in any shape or form to be having with a 15 year old girl. They were relating to sexual behaviour.”

Ainsbury was subsequently arrested after meeting the 15 year old at Bourne swimming baths.

Mr Geeson said that the Sexual Offences Prevention Order was imposed on Ainsbury at Peterborough Crown Court back in April 2005 and two years later he was jailed after he broke the order on a previous occasion.

Ainsbury (45), of Beeston Drive, Peterborough, admitted breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order between July 1 and November 22. He admitted a further breach of the order as a result of the incident at Bourne on November 22.

Michael Cranmer-Brown, in mitigation, said Ainsbury pleaded guilty to both matters without any prevarication and urged that the judge should take into account the fact that the previous breach of the order was eight years ago.
