A MAN who raped a 15-year-old girl after allegedly threatening to post naked photographs of her has been remanded for reports by a judge.

Cameron Chambers, 23, "groomed" the girl over an internet messaging service by pretending to be another 15-year-old, claimed Peter Cooper, prosecuting at Stafford Crown Court.

He told the court that the Crown would open the case against Chambers on the basis that the defendant raped the girl three times on three different days.

There was "extensive grooming" of the victim by Chambers and "sexual activities into which he subsequently coerced her by threatening to publish naked photographs of her," said Mr Cooper.

Chambers, of Church Hill Street, Burton, admitted raping the girl on February 21 this year and a further two offences of rape on February 26 and March 3. Darron Whitehead, defending, said Chambers had been on bail since his arrest on March 13 and asked the court for it to be extended until his client appeared again for sentence.

Judge Paul Glenn remanded Chambers on bail.

He told him: "I'll adjourn for a pre-sentence report before you are sentenced on September 19.

"The report is intended to address your background and the issue of dangerousness.

"The type of sentence is inevitable in this case and no doubt you have been advised already.

"You have attended court each time and I am trusting you to return again."

The judge made it a condition of the defendant's bail that he resided at his home address.

He was also ordered to register with the police as a sex offender as soon as he left court.
