A Kettering man has been jailed for nine years for the rape of a 12-year-old girl.
Alister Malsher, aged 24, of St Mary's Road, admitted at least 15 counts of rape between August and November 2016.
He also admitted causing a child under the age of 13 to watch pornographic videos for his own sexual gratification.
The defendant, who admitted his guilt last month midway through a trial at Northampton Crown Court, was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely.
Last month a jury was dismissed on day four of the planned week-long trial - during which the victim and another young person had been forced to give evidence - when Malsher changed his plea to guilty on all counts.
They were told Malsher worked as a binman and, at the time of the offences, was a drummer with a band based at a church in Kettering.
The court heard Malsher had groomed his victim and then raped her on a number of occasions at an address in the town.
