Elliott Brennan, 25, was charged with a total of nine offences against the 15-year-old.

Brennan, of Swan Close in Nuneaton, was sentenced to 21 months’ imprisonment at Luton Crown Court after pleading guilty to eight of the charges.

A further charge of perverting the course of Justice was ordered to lie on his file.

Det Con Greg Tomkins said: “Brennan committed a string of sickening offences over several months, gaining the trust of a teenager and exploiting her.

“We are pleased that Brennan has at least admitted his predatory behaviour to save her the further ordeal of having to give evidence at court.

“We welcome this sentencing and will continue to work to keep Bedfordshire safe and protect the most vulnerable in our communities.”

Brennan was placed onto the sex offenders register, has been issued with a restraining order to protect the victim from any further contact and will have his computer equipment and phone destroyed.
