A Corby man has been given a three-year community order and a string of other penalties after pleading guilty to one count of sexual activity with a child and nine counts of assault by beating (tattooing a minor).
24-year-old Anthony Fordham was sentenced at Northampton Crown Court last week.
In addition to the community order, he will carry out 125 hours of unpaid work, spend three years on a sex offender programme, three years on a sexual harm prevention order and five years on the Sex Offender Register.
Fordham has been on remand since March following an investigation by the RISE (Reducing Incidents of Sexual Exploitation) team.
