A PREDATORY paedophile” from Crayford who groomed a “vulnerable” 14-year-old girl on Facebook has been locked up.
Steven Clive, of Russell Close, used a fake name to develop his relationship with the victim between May and July in 2011.
After pleading guilty on March 18 to one count of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and two counts of sexual activity with a child, Clive was jailed at Woolwich Crown Court yesterday.
He was jailed for a total of two years and five months, handed a five-year sex offences prevention order and will be on the sex offenders register for 10 years.
The 35-year-old met with the young girl in south east London on “several occasions” where he had sex with her.
It was only when the teenager confided in a friend about the relationship that police became involved.
Detective Constable Chris Hammond of the MPS Sapphire Command said: “Steven Clive is a predatory paedophile who has targeted a vulnerable young girl to satisfy his own sexual needs.
The MPS is dedicated to protecting the public from sexual predators and encourage victims to come forward.”
