A SICK paedophile has been jailed for raping two 12-year-old girls who he groomed on Snapchat.
Solomon Asemota, 30, admitted to plying the girls with booze and drugs before abusing them multiple times in various locations in the Manchester area.Solomon Asemota, 30, groomed the girls on Snapchat and plied them with booze and drugs[/caption] The victims suffered “significant trauma” according to a specialist nurse[/caption]
The pervert raped one of the girls during a game of “Truth or Dare” and raped both of the girls in his car.
Further crimes included taking both of them to a friend’s house where he had sex with one while offering the other to his friend.
He also performed sex acts on the victims in front of one another and took intimate videos of them.
In total, he pleaded guilty to seven counts of rape and was today jailed for 10 years, with an extended license period of a year.
He will also be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 20 years and will have to sign onto the Sex Offenders Register for life.
Sentencing him, Judge Rachel Smith said: “Both victims were highly vulnerable and highly susceptible to exploitation. Your relationship with each of the girls was predatory and opportunistic.”

“You exploited each of them for your own gratification. You spent sufficient time with them to know what they were like, and there is evidence of grooming, providing them with company, transport, food, and later alcohol and drugs.”
In victim impact statements, the girls detailed the trauma he had inflicted upon them.
One said she cries herself to sleep and has trouble trusting men, while the other said she had felt like she could not report Asemota because she was scared.
Simon Blakbrough, prosecuting Asemota, detailed one of the victims, having been reported missing, led cops to what she called “Prince’s house” where “They found the other victim in bed with a man.”
‘Prince’ was arrested and then released due to a lack of forensic evidence.
However, such evidence was soon discovered and ‘Prince’ identified as Asemota, leading to his re-arrest.
In his police interview, he expressed surprise at the ages of his victims, saying that he had “thought they were 16 or 17 but “looked young” and that they “couldn’t be as young as 12.”
Asemota then admitted getting one of the girls drunk on vodka in his car and smoking cannabis with both girls at his aunt’s house.

A specialist nurse who supports sexually exploited children told Manchester Crown Court that both girls had experienced “significant trauma” and that the impact of the crimes upon them will be “sustained and life long.”
Asemota’s defence lawyer offered little mitigation beyond his client’s honesty in his answers to police and said that he was “entirely the author of his own misfortune.”
