Paedophile claims 9-year-old girl he abused ‘flirted’ with him and had ‘a sexual need’

Rape of minor

A 19-year-old jailed for molesting a nine-year-old girl he was babysitting claimed his victim had been flirting with him.

Sick Jack Langdon molested his victim at her home after tricking her parents into allowing him to look after her.

The girl later told her mum she had been on the sofa and watching TV when Langdon touched her through a hole in her leggings.

She also said the teenager told bragged of “naughty images” on his mobile phone.

Langdon – who had also been posing as a girl to get young women to send indecent images to him – admitted one count of assaulting the girl but later tried to shift the blame onto his victim, telling a probation officer she had been acting “all flirty” with him.

He also said the nine-year-old had “a sexual need that needed to be met”.

Sentencing Langdon on Thursday, Judge David Ticehurst said:

“The act was committed when you had gained the trust of the family. She was someone you were trusted to look after and you abused that trust. 

You also sought out images of abuse and portrayed yourself as a young girl online and encouraged others to send you images of themselves. 

No matter what problems you have, you knew to hide your identity in order to try and contact other young girls.”

He added: “I have no doubt you knew perfectly well what you were doing.

“If you continue to offend in this manner, if you do not take the help offered to you in prison and you offend again, you run the risk of life imprisonment.”

Langdon was jailed at Taunton Crown Court for four years after he admitted one count of sexual assault, three of distributing indecent images and nine of possessing indecent images.
