A man from Northampton has been sentenced to three years in prison at Manchester Crown Court. Levi Lovey was found guilty of sexual offences that involve a child under the age of 15, attempted rape, sexual assault, and sexual activity with a child.
According to the enquires, Levi would play games to manipulate a 13-year-old boy and gained the trust of adults. Then, he committed several crimes related to sexual assault and activity towards the boy.
Levi was sentenced to three years in prison for sex offences. He will also be required to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life and a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
Detective Constable Sajid Pervaiz GMP’s Tameside Division said: “This was a complex investigation and the victim, in this case, has demonstrated immense bravery in giving evidence, no doubt having to re-live the trauma. I commend his strength for being able to come forward. He has played an important part in exposing the harmful behaviour and risk posed by Lovey.”
“I hope this result sends a message to all victims who are suffering in silence that we will thoroughly investigate allegations of sexual offences against children, and do everything we can to bring those offenders to justice.”
