Man jailed for sex offences


A 22-year-old man has been jailed for two years after admitting trying to incite young girls to take part in sexual activities.

Oliver Richard Lee, of Newnham Green, Gorleston, was sentenced at Norwich Crown Court today by Judge Bates.

Lee was jailed after admitting two counts of ’attempting to cause/incite a girl aged 13 to 15 to engage in sexual activity’ and one count of ‘making indecent images’.

Lee was arrested by officers from Norfolk Constabulary’s Safeguarding Children Online Team (SCOLT) following a warrant at his address in June 2015.

A number of items of electronic equipment were seized, including mobile phones and a Lenovo laptop.

Following forensic examination a number of chat-logs between Lee and four people he believed to be underage girls, were discovered. The logs revealed Lee asking them to provide naked pictures and to perform various other sex acts.

Lee was charged by SCOLT officers on 11 May 2016.

Lee was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years.
