Nigerian Computer Science student, 21, jailed for raping a 12-year-old girl
David Nwosu raped a 12-year-old Stoke-on-Trent girl – and then encouraged a second teenager to send him intimate photographs of herself. Nwosu was studying maths and computer science at Keele University when he met the 12-year-old online – and raped her during a second meeting.
The promising student later met a 15-year-old South Wales girl on social media and asked for naked pictures. Now Nwosu has been jailed for five years and placed on the sex offenders’ register for the rest of his life.
Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard the 12-year-old revealed she was ’14, going on 15′. Prosecutor Glyn Samuel said: “He told her he wanted to have sex with her and would like to make a sex tape with her.
He sent her two intimate pictures of himself and told her he loved her and if she loved him she would send sexual pictures of herself. She sent pictures of her bottom and breasts.”
The defendant met his second victim – who at first claimed she was 16 – on social media between Christmas and New Year. Mr Samuel added: “He would send her pictures of himself and asked her to send pictures of herself.
He requested pictures of her breasts and bottom, was very persistent and told her he was 18. “She soon confessed she was only 15. He said he did not care and continued to contact her. She confirmed she sent pictures of her naked breasts.
He tried to persuade her to kiss her friend in a sexual way but she would not do that.
“She never met up with him. She knew he wanted her for sexual purposes and nothing else.”
Nwosu, of Jenkinson Close, Newcastle, pleaded guilty to rape of a child under 13 and causing or inciting sexual exploitation of a 15-year-old child. Rebecca Wade, mitigating, said the defendant was an intelligent man but was immature.
She said: “The offences have brought shame on his family. He is an intelligent man who has made significant mistakes which will have an impact on him and the victims.”
