Pervert blackmailed females to send him indecent pictures


A twisted Dover teenager who blackmailed females from all over the world to send him indecent pictures of themselves has been jailed for 12 years

Evan Prevett, 18, of Buckland Avenue, pleaded guilty to blackmail, taking indecent images of a child and inciting child pornography at Canterbury Crown Court on April 14.

Perverted Prevett even threatened to kill one victim if she did not send him the pictures he was demanding.

Kent Police was first contacted by a woman in Canada who reported that Prevett had been blackmailing her to send him indecent images of herself.

They had become friends via social networking sites and on several occasions he asked her to take her clothes off. But unbeknown to her, Prevett was taking snapshots of her and saving these to his computer.

He then made threats to send the pictures to her friends and family if she did not send him more images.

When officers arrested him, he admitted knowing the victim but denied the threats. They seized his laptop and found photos of a victim in Texas as well as from the Shetland Islands.

Prevett also made threats to one victim’s life if she did not send him images.

Officers believe there were six victims in total
