A man from Aldingbourne has been sentenced to four and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual activity with young girls he met through social media.
23-year-old roofer, Mitchell Jones, of Nyton Road in Aldingbourne near Chichester, was sentenced for three counts of sexual activity with a child aged 14 and one count of sexual activity with a child aged 15.
The counts relate to his offending against a 14-year old girl in Chichester over three months in 2015, and also with a girl aged 15 in Hampshire around the same time.
He met both girls through social media.
Jones will also be a registered sex offender for life and was given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) to last indefinitely, severely restricting his access to young children and computers.
