A WOMAN in a position of trust had been jailed for committing sex offences with a child in and around South West London.

Ashley Wright, 26, of Leicestershire, was sentenced to two years and two months’ imprisonment at Kingston Crown Court on June 22.

On April 22, she pleaded guilty at the same court to two counts of sexual activity with a child, sexual communication with a child and abuse of position.

Wright has also been added to the Disclosure and Barring list and placed on the Sex Offenders Registers for ten years.

The sexual offences occurred between May 2019 and January 2020 in and around south west London and the surrounding areas.

The offences all relate to one victim who was aged between 15 and 16 at the time of the offences.

Detective Sergeant Julie Harding, from South West Command Unit said: “This woman committed a series of serious offences, abusing her position of trust in order to exploit and abuse a young man in a vulnerable position who was under her authority and in her care.

“This sentence demonstrates that sexual assault and violence will not be tolerated in any form against any victim.

"Victims of abuse and sexual violence should feel confident that officers will work tirelessly to seek justice.

“I would encourage anyone who is victim or witness to sexual abuse in any context to contact police.

"We have specially trained officers to investigate as well as ensuring there is ongoing support provided to victims.”
