A pervert caught by paedophile hunting team has avoided a prison sentence

Sib Harty, of Christchurch appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court where he admitted online sexual offences

The court heard that Harty had contacted an online profile he believed belonged to a child. Harty sent a string of sexual messages. 

However, the child did not exist and was instead an adult member of paedophile hunting team ‘Wasp’ who pose online as children to catch sexual predators who target children.

‘Justice for the innocent’ confronted Harty with the evidence and Harty replied ‘Its only grooming’

Police were called and Harty was arrested

The judge sentenced him to a three year community order

A five year sexual harm prevention order was imposed and he was told that he must register as a sex offender for a period of five years
