Phyllippe Baker, 56 and of London, was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on Wednesday 30 November 2022. He was previously found guilty on Wednesday 2 November 2022 of sexual communication with a child, meeting a child following sexual grooming and causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity.

Baker was sentenced to six years in prison, with an extended licence period of a further three years.

The offences occurred between Saturday 1 August 2020 and Thursday 8 April 2021.

Dorset Police was made aware on Thursday 8 April 2021 of messages of a sexual nature on the phone of a girl aged 12 years old.

The victim was visited by police and it was established that a man had visited her a few days earlier. She was provided with a phone by the man.

The victim provided details of his car registration number, which identified that the vehicle was linked to Baker.

Baker was subsequently arrested and a notebook belonging to the defendant was seized, as well as digital devices. The notebook contained personal details of the victim.

Detective Constable Mandy Lawrence, of the Child Abuse Investigation Team (CAIT), said: “The victim in this case did not provide an account of what happened. However, through investigative work, we were able to identify Baker and bring him before the courts.

“Baker knowingly communicated with his victim in a sexual nature, despite her young age.

“Dorset Police takes sexual offending against children extremely seriously and we will do all we can to identify those responsible.”
