Pervert locked up for under-age sex ‘obsessed with young girls and Facebook’
A teen who is “obsessed with young girls and social media” has been locked up for 15 months for pursing two of them on Facebook and having under-age sex with another.
Troubled teenager Lee Daysley, 18, was barred from contacting young girls on the social network after having sex with an underage girl he contacted.
But after the requirements of the Sexual Offences Prevention Order were clearly spelled out, he “flagrantly ignored” them by again targeting underage girls on Facebook and beginning a sexual relationship with a girl aged 13.
Hull Crown Court heard he was arrested after the mother of one of his victims contacted police to say he had sent her text messages in which he “threatened to expose her” by publishing indecent images on social network sites.
He either knew all the girls’ ages or that they were under 16.
The court heard both girls contacted on Facebook rejected his “friend requests” and were “upset” by his approaches.
Judge Jeremy Richardson QC said: “He’s obsessed with young girls and obsessed with social media, which is his vehicle to get in touch with these young girls.”
Julia Baggs, defending, said: “The defendant is clearly not only a young man in age terms, but in terms of development and maturity he is considerably younger.
“He would like to start afresh when he comes out of prison.
“He realises now he has a fault; he needs some help and would like to engage in what support is available to him.”
Daysley, of Wivern Road, east Hull, admitted breaching the order and having sex with an underage girl.
Sentencing Daysley to 15 months in a young offenders institution, Judge Richardson, who had issued the original order, told him: “It is apparent to me that you have flagrantly ignored the order I made.
“Orders are to be obeyed and when an individual flagrantly flouts an order there is but one result, and that is a custodial sentence.
“I sincerely hope that whilst you are in custody you will undertake a therapeutic course to assist you with your sexual predilections.
“It is plain to me that you have an abnormal interest in girls under the age of consent.
“You pose a real risk to pubescent girls and I have come to the conclusion that there are real risks here of you reoffending.”
Daysley was also made subject to a new five-year SOPO and a restraining order barring him from contacting his three most recent victims until they are 18.
He must also sign the sex offenders register for ten years.
