A twisted paedophile who groomed an 11-year-old child has been jailed following a sick three-month campaign of abuse.
Kamir Khan, 31, bombarded his victim with more than 4,000 lewd messages over Snapchat and WhatsApp as he prayed on her vulnerability.
The sicko even begged for naked pictures from the young girl before telling her he loved her and would marry her.
Sheffield Crown Court heard how Khan, from Rotherham, touched his victim inappropriately on two occasions in February and March last year.
His perverse abuse came to light when the girl’s mother found his twisted messages on her phone.
The "visibly distressed" victim told of Khan’s actions and her mum immediately contacted police.
He had been messaging her under the pseudonym "Zayne", the court was told.
The evil predator had sent the girl naked pictures of himself and close-ups of his genitals.
Khan admitted two counts of assaulting a girl under 13 by touching, inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity and engaging in sexual communication with a child.
He was jailed for four and a half years and placed on the Sex Offender Register.
Investigating Officer, Rachel Scott, said: "Khan preyed on his victim over a period of months, taking full advantage of her age, and her vulnerability.
"He manipulated her into thinking he was her boyfriend, and it was normal for him to send her such explicit messages.
"This girl has been incredibly strong throughout this inquiry and I couldn't be prouder of how much she has assisted our investigation.
"This was a difficult case, however I am pleased that we were able to establish such evidence that Khan had no option to plead guilty to these offences.
"I believe he is a danger to children and I am pleased that he is now behind bars.
"I want to take this opportunity to remind young people to consider their safety online and never give out personal details or share intimate pictures.
"To parents, if your child is on social media sites, please be vigilant and regularly ask who they are speaking to.”
