A young man who had sex with an under-age girl has been remanded in custody after a judge heard he already had a caution for a similar offence.

Loukas Warne, 20, who is from Rugby but now of Leicester Road, Nuneaton, pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to three charges of sexual activity with a child.

The charges relate to one occasion earlier this year when Warne had sex with a 15-year-old girl and two when he engaged in other sexual activity with her.

The court heard Warne had also received a caution in 2011 for similar activity.

Colin Charvill, defending, said: “He has clearly done this before.”

Judge Richard Griffith-Jones adjourned the case until the new year to allow a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

He refused an application for bail and remanded Warne in custody and ordered him to register as a sex offender.
