Rapper to be sentenced after filming himself having sex with schoolgirls
A rapper who groomed schoolgirls on social media before filming himself having sex with them will be sentenced today.
Daniel Rodriguez, also known as Grimey D, contacted five victims aged 14 and 15 over Instagram, Facebook and Blackberry Messenger and persuaded them to come to his home.
In one encounter, he filmed sex with a 14-year-old girl who had arrived at his house wearing her school uniform.
The 28-year-old, of Thrasher Close in Hackney, north London, was caught when detectives examined the phone of a 14-year-old girl and found messages suggesting he was in a sexual relationship with her.
She told officers he had first contacted her on Instagram when she was 13, and she was 14 when she visited his home, where he engaged in sexual activity with her on her second visit.
On one occasion, the girl went with a friend, also 14, and Rodriguez engaged in sexual activity with both of them.
Following his arrest on August 27 last year, officers seized and searched his phone, Blackberry and several USB drives, and found videos of Rodriguez having sex with four of the victims - three aged 14 and one aged 15.
He groomed his victims by complimenting their appearance on social media, telling them he loved them and inviting them to his home before regularly having sex with them.
A sixth girl, aged 15, did not want to be interviewed by police but Rodriguez admitted creating an indecent image of her.
In total, he has admitted five charges of sexual activity with a child, one of sexual assault and four of creating an indecent image of a child. He will be sentenced at Wood Green Crown Court.
