A Lynn man who admitted sex offences against two teenage girls has been jailed.

Paul Davis, 27, of All Saints Street, was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison at Chelmsford Crown Court on Tuesday.

He had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a girl aged under 16 and one charge of being concerned in the supply of cannabis during a hearing in March.

All the offences were committed between June and November 2014.

Stephen Rose, prosecuting, told the court Davis was arrested after one of the girls involved was caught at a music festival in possession of cannabis.

Further inquiries revealed his activities with the girls and the class B drug.

Although counsel for Davis argued that he should be given a suspended sentence, judge David Turner QC said his offences were “far too serious” for that

He said that at the time Davis had been an adult of 26 and had taken advantage of children.

He continued: “It was your duty to protect them from themselves. It was something you failed to do.”

“You not only took sexual advantage of these girls – you used one of them as a drug courier.”
