A man who plied an “infatuated” 13-year-old girl with gifts of adult underwear, then tried to hang himself in front of her after their relationship ended, has been jailed for five years.
Javid Sadiq, 27, disregarded a warning letter from police telling him to stop seeing the girl and bought her thongs and a fancy bra, Bradford Crown Court heard. She told victim support workers Sadiq made her pregnant and she had a miscarriage.
Sadiq, of Melba Road, Canterbury , Bradford, pleaded guilty to three sample charges of sexual activity with a child, between September 7, 2010, and January, 20, 2011.
He was jailed for three years for those offences and imprisoned for an additional two years for a separate offence of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence on August 22 last year.
