Pervert caught by paedophile hunting team

A pervert who groomed what he believed was a 13 year old for sex has been jailed

Jamie Turner, 37 of Manchester appeared at court where he pleaded guilty to sexual communication with a child and other grooming offences

The court was told that Turner contacted the profile of who he believed was 13 year old girl.

He sent a string of sexually charged messages. He also sent sexually explicit photos and videos to that girl with the intent of engaging in sexual activity with the child.

However, unknown to Turner, he was actually speaking to an adult member of paedophile hunting team ‘STFOK’ who pose online in an attempt to catch sexual predators who target children

Turner arranged to meet the child at Salford train station, but was met by the paedophile hunter team who questioned him on his internet activity before ringing the police.

The judge sentenced Turner to 30 months in prison, and told him that he must register as a sex offender
