Using the Snapchat profile ‘jayjaydizzy’ 29-year-old Jordan Morgan began communicating with the victim, telling her he was 15.
Despite knowing she was just 11 years old, Morgan arranged to meet her in Preston on May 14th of this year. He then took her to woods off Banbury Drive and raped her.
Morgan was identified via mobile phone and social media enquiries and arrested at his home in Salford. CCTV enquiries and clothing recovered from Morgan’s home placed him at the scene and his DNA was present on an apple juice bottle we found in the woods.
Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, Morgan, of Murray Street, Salford, was charged with rape and meeting a girl under 16 years of age following grooming.
Morgan pleaded guilty to both offences and was jailed for 10 years when he appeared in the dock at Preston Crown Court last week. He was made subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention order which prevents him from having any unsupervised contact with any child under 16 and was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life.
