Man jailed after being snared by internet paedophile hunters ‘Dark Justice’
A man who thought he was meeting a 13-year-old girl but had really been ensnared by internet paedophile hunters has been jailed.
Stephen Short, 57, from Blyth, Northumberland, brought wine and Viagra to the meeting that had actually been arranged by the group Dark Justice.
Short is now the fourth person to be jailed following the group’s undercover work where they pose as underage girls online.
During conversations on phone apps Scout and WhatsApp, the sex offender spoke about having sexual intercourse, sent explicit videos of himself and asked for photos of her.
