AN Oxford man has been jailed for 17 years after filming himself abusing a 13-year-old girl in America he had groomed in a Harry Potter chatroom.
Nicholas Cheese, from Cutteslowe, had befriended the girl through the chatroom and then arranged to meet the girl when he went to the United States on a business trip.
He admitted to police he knew she was only 13.
Cheese wept as his parents asked for leniancy.
However Cheese was sentenced to 17 years with five years of supervised release as the judge said his actions towards the girl were "unusually aggressive".
