Sex offender Aron Scott jailed for repeatedly raping girl

A man has been jailed for sexually assaulting and repeatedly raping a young girl over a period of several years – from when she was just six.

Aron Scott, 27, began his campaign of abuse more than a decade ago.

When his victim was just six-years-old, he would encourage her to engage in sexual acts.

The offences continued when she was in her early teens and Scott raped her on a number of occasions.

His victim later told her family about Scott’s behaviour, and they contacted Kent Police in 2020.

Her disclosures led to an investigation by the East Kent Vulnerability Investigation Team, who charged Scott with multiple sexual offences in September 2021.

Scott, of Birds Avenue, Margate, later admitted 12 charges including rape of a child, sexual activity with a child and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

He was jailed for a total of 10 years and 10 months.

An indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order was also imposed to prevent future offences following his release.
