A 25-year-old London, Ontario man has been sentenced to 90 days behind bars after choking a 14-year-old girl and forcing her to perform sex acts.
According to the London Free Press, 25-year-old Dylan Broadbent pleaded guilty in a London courtroom once Ontario Court Justice Jeanine LeRoy was presented with an agreed upon statements of facts.
Broadbent had known the girl (whose identity is protected) for two years after they met at a house party and kept in contact through social media. The girl only knew the man through his nicknames “Dill Pickle” and “519”.
On July 6, 2017, Broadbent and the girl connected on Instagram. Broadbent and two male friends met the girl at a local Greyhound bus station and left together to buy alcohol.
They all went to a Richmond Street apartment where they drank. Broadbent then tried to have sex with the girl near the front door on a shoe rack. This made the girl angry, so they moved to a couch in the living room, but one of the apartment residents told them to use his bedroom.
During sex, Broadbent tried to choke the girl and forced her into other sex acts. The following day, the girl got involved in a human trafficking investigation and revealed her encounter with Broadbent.
His DNA was found during the girl’s medical examination, and photos of the girl with Broadbent were uncovered during the police investigation.
