A man has been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment after being convicted of sexual offences against a child.

Talisin Mills, aged 21, of Santa Cruz Avenue, Newton Leys, just north of Stoke Hammond, was sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday.

He was charged on January 6, with causing a child under the age of 15 to look at an image of sexual activity and breach of a Sexual Harm Prevention order.

Mills pleaded guilty in February to breaching the Sexual Harm Prevention Order. He pleaded guilty to the charge of causing a child under the age of 15 to look at an image of sexual activity on the same day that he was sentenced.

The offence occurred on January 4 this year, and breached the terms of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which had been imposed on Mills at a court hearing in October 2015.

The victim of the offence was a 14-year-old boy.

Mills was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment for causing a child under the age of 15 to look at an image of sexual activity and 12 months’ imprisonment for breach of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. This activated a two-year suspended sentence for similar offences.

The sentences will run concurrently, meaning that Mills’ total sentence is three years’ imprisonment.

Det Con Graeme Williams of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit, said: “We would like to praise the courage of the victim and witnesses in coming forward to report this incident.

“The sentence imposed by the court demonstrates Thames Valley Police’s commitment to protecting vulnerable people and we would always encourage all victims of sexual offences to come forward and report them. We will listen to you and deal with you sensitively.”
