Prosecutor Jeremy Carter-Manning QC said that as a young man, Mr Jefferies abandoned a plan to pursue a career in medicine and joined HMRC in a "pretty basic" role.
Under-11s should be given explicit sex education to help reduce teenage pregnancies, a Labour MP has said.
Chris Bryant, who made the headlines in 2003 after appearing on a gay dating website in his underwear, also recommended distributing condoms in schools.
These could include visits to sexual health clinics for information, advice and contraception.
In 2003, Mr Bryant, a former Anglican vicar, sent a picture of himself wearing just Yfronts to a stranger on a gay dating website.
