Police in the United Kingdom, have arrested a father of two children over an incident that occurred when he was 15 years old.

The Gloucester Crown Court heard that Luke Driver, sexually abused a girl several times, starting when she was just 9 years old.

Prosecutor Anjali Gohil said that the girl came forward recently, after she read a woman’s magazine that belonged to her mother and she learned that the abused was not normal behavior.

Driver locked the girl in a dark room that was filled with spiders to scare the child until she agreed to be sexually abused by him, the court heard.

Driver, who is now 21, pleaded guilty to orally raping the girl, trying to rape her twice, sexually assaulting her on two occasions and inciting a child into sexual activity.

Judge Jamie Tabor QC sentenced Driver to four years in prison.

The judge took into consideration that Driver was at the time “a troubled boy, immature, and to some degree that this was sexual experimentation.”

The judge also told the suspect that if he had been an adult when he committed the crimes, he would have received a much longer prison sentence.
