The offences followed an exchange of WhatsApp messages, including an image sent by Brown featuring condoms and a blindfold, the court heard.

Brown, of Rothwell, West Yorkshire, admitted five offences of sexual activity with a child, three of penetrative sexual activity with a child and three of taking indecent images of a child. The offences happened between 2015 and 2017.
Jailing him for ten years, Judge David Goodin told him he had ‘betrayed the solemn trust of society in the most comprehensive way imaginable’.
He added: ‘You’re no fool. You knew exactly what you were doing. Your illicit, illegal and shameful activity with both girls was not very different.’
Andrew Oliver, defending, said Brown had pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity.
He had also shown remorse and accepted the accounts of both girls, acknowledging the vulnerability of both girls.
Mr Oliver added: ‘He doesn’t seek to blame anyone but himself. He knows he has devastated the direct victims and caused knock-on harm to others.’
Mr Oliver said Brown had since lost his career, marriage and home.
