A 32-year-old man from Cheam who raped and exploited a vulnerable 16-year-old girl has been convicted.

32 year old Jason Vasan was found guilty of rape, causing child pornography, taking indecent images of a child and possession of extreme pornography, having already pleaded guilty to supplying cannabis.

In July 2015, SOECA officers were made aware of information suggesting that Vasan was exploiting girls under the age of 18, encouraging them to perform on adult web-cam sites, with promises of making them money.

After further enquiries, officers arrested Vasan at his home, where they seized various laptops, phones and documents.

Officers then got in touch with a number of young women and girls they believed Vasan was targeting and potentially exploiting.

They spoke to a 16-year-old girl who told them how she met Vasan whilst living in a hostel and how he persuaded her to start working on an adult web-cam site.

Specially trained officers spoke at length with the victim and discovered how Vasan established financial control over her, supplied her with drugs and then exploited her to take various sexually explicit images and videos, posting some of these to the website.

She also disclosed to officers how Vasan raped her at her home address.

Detectives trawled through Vasan's computers and phones and found messages between Vasan and the victim that supported her account. They also found thousands of sexually explicit videos and images, including many of the victim.

Financial enquiries by detectives showed that Vasan was receiving payments from the website and then taking a cut for himself, before paying various women, including the victim, money for their appearances on the website.

After further enquiries, Vasan was charged in October 2015 and following a two-week trial at Croydon Crown Court was found guilty of the offences above and remanded in custody to be sentenced at the end of January.
