#AceNewsReport – Mar.13: When the girl’s teacher became suspicious the police were informed and Clarke was arrested in January 2020 after he was identified through phone records: Despite knowing her age they started to exchange explicit photos: Clarke was also given a sex offence prevention order and ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register:
Warwick man jailed for grooming 14-year-old girl: ‘A man who groomed a teenage girl has been jailed for 20 months: Jason William Clarke, aged 47, of Webb Drive, Warwick started chatting to the 14-year-old online in 2019’
Detective Constable Claire Scott from Warwickshire Police CID said: “Clarke showed typical behaviours associated with grooming. He made his victim feel special to the point where she believed they were in love; in fact he was just grooming her for his own sexual gratification: “ His actions continue to have a huge impact on his victim who has shown great bravery in supporting this investigation.”
What is grooming?
Grooming is when someone builds a relationship, trust and emotional connection with someone so they can manipulate, exploit and abuse them.
Spotting the signs of child grooming.
Spotting the signs of a child being groomed can be difficult. They may include:
- Being secretive, especially around their online activity
- Having an older boyfriend or girlfriend
- Having money or new things such as mobile phones or clothes they can’t or won’t account for
- Drinking or taking drugs
- Spending more or less time online
- Being upset, withdrawn or distressed
- Sexualised behaviour not appropriate for their age
- Going missing from home.
How to report concern around grooming
- If someone is in immediate danger dial 999
- If it is not an emergency call police on 101
- Visit a police station to speak to an officer in person
- Contact the NSPCC to speak to a professional practitioner
- contact the children’s social care team at your local council
- Make an anonymous report to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
