Re-offending paedophile avoids prison again


A paedophile who was caught with indecent images of children has now been caught grooming schoolgirls online.

In August, Kevan Christopher Rose (29) of Clent Avenue, Kidderminster appeared in court and pleaded guilty to possession of indecent images of children. On this occasion he  avoided a prison sentence and was instead fined.

However, when police checked his computer a few weeks later, they discovered he had deleted the browsing history. Despite this attempt by Rose, the police examined the computer and discovered Rose had been grooming schoolgirls online.

The court was told that Rose, who worked as a sales assistant in Stourport at the time, had contacted a number of underage girls in a sexual manner. He progressed to asking them for indecent images of themselves.

It was also revealed that Rose had contacted a number of other paedophile’s online, in a bid to exchange photos and fantasies involving child sexual abuse

Rose pleaded guilty to all of the above and was sentenced to a community order which would last until 2019. 

He was made subject to the notification requirements for registered sex offenders and told he must complete a rehabilitation course to address his offending
