A pervert who engaged in sexual activity with a child over the internet will be sentenced next month.

Matthew Hoffman, 28, of St Hilda’s Court in Aylesbury, had an inappropriate online relationship with a 15-year-old girl – who he knew was underage – between December 2012 and April 2013.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of ‘sexual activity in the presence of a child’ at Aylesbury Crown Court on Monday.

Investigating officer Det Con Carl Wilson said: “This was a lengthy investigation into the violation of a vulnerable girl over the internet.

“I am pleased the defendant had the decency to admit his guilt to the court and face the consequences of his actions.”

Hoffman will be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on February 16.
