A man was spared jail time after admitting he had sex with an underage girl.
Jamacey Downer received a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 16.
Downer was 22 years old when he had sex with the then 14-year-old girl in September of 2018.
The girl said the man first met her at a pool party and blew kisses at her.
On the day of the incident, the two began talking under a tree shortly after she came off a school bus.
The man then took the minor to his home where she agreed to have sex with him.
In his defense, the man said he thought the girl was 16 years old.
Downer, a first-time offender, was sentenced to 10 months’ imprisonment suspended for 18 months.
This means the 10 months prison sentence will not be enforced unless the defendant commits another crime over the next year and a half.
