West Cumbria paedophile jailed for seven-and-a-half years

A PAEDOPHILE has been locked up for committing child sex crimes which a judge described as “wretched” and “wicked”.

Carlisle Crown Court heard 29-year-old Leigh Mavir groomed his teenage victim and exploited her over an 11-month period.

Police who investigated Mavir’s criminal conduct found he also took scores of illegal photographs of the girl – some classed in category A, the most serious.

He was sentenced at the crown court having pleaded guilty to 12 offences. These were six counts of sexual activity with a child; three charges of taking indecent images of his young victim; and three of making indecent photographs of other, unknown children having downloaded almost 1,000 pictures.

Mavir, of The Crescent, Egremont, received a seven-and-a-half-year jail term for what Judge Peter Davies called ” wretched, corrupting, wicked offences”

Mavir was made subject, indefinitely, to both the sex offender notification requirements and the strict terms of a sexual harm prevention order.
