Romford man admits sending indecent sexual images to 14-year-old girl online


A man has pleaded guilty to sending indecent sexual images to a child after he was confronted by the girl’s mother.

Daniel Payne, 23, of Redden Court Road, Romford, had been chatting online to a 14-year-old girl and pleaded guilty to causing a child aged 13 to 15 to watch or look at an image of sexual activity on June 20 at Romford Magistrates Court.

The mother approached Payne in Romford on May 28 and asked him why he had been having illicit conversations with her daughter before police promptly arrived to arrest him.

Chat logs of the conversation between Payne and the victim show him repeatedly calling her between messages which read, “I’m hard” and “my **** is so hard”.
