A man who paid to have sex with two 16-year-old girls has been jailed. 

Craig Hughes, 37, of Adams Close in Buckingham, has been jailed for four years in a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on January 8. 

In February 2018, Hughes paid two victims, who were aged 16 at the time, for sexual services in Milton Keynes and Buckingham. 

He was convicted of five counts of paying for the sexual services of a girl on November 24 last year. 

A jury found him guilty by unanimous verdict following a six-day trial. 

Investigating officer, DC Vince Higgins of Milton Keynes police station, said: “I am satisfied that Craig Hughes has been sentenced following his conviction of sexual offences in November last year.

“He denied the counts against him but a jury found him guilty of five counts, and not guilty of a further two.

“He will now face a prison sentence whereby he can reflect on his actions, and the damage it will have caused to the victims.

“Thames Valley Police will always investigate reports of this nature extremely seriously, and target offenders with a view to bringing them to court.”
