Swansea man jailed for child sex offences

Phillip Bowler

A man from Swansea has been jailed for multiple child sex offences.

34-year-old Phillip Bowler, from Mount Pleasant, sent messages of a sexual nature to a child before arranging a meeting to force them to delete the messages. He then touched the victim inappropriately.

Bowler later sent multiple further communications to the child, making considerable effort to incite them into sexual activity. He also sent the victim a video of himself which was of a sexual nature.

Phillip Bowler has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison for engaging in sexual communications with a child, inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and for arranging/facilitating of child sexual offences.

He will be a registered sex offender for life.

Detective Inspector Sharon Gill-Lewis said:

“After prolonged abuse by Phillip Bowler, his victim bravely made the decision to disclose Bowler’s abuse, first to a family member and then in turn the Police.

“This sentence demonstrates that this type of offending will not go unpunished. Phillip Bowler preyed on a defenceless child victim in a depraved manner, and is now rightfully beginning a prison sentence.”
