Paedophile targeted teenage boys through online game Minecraft


A pervert who preyed on young boys on the incredibly popular video game Minecraft has admitted a string of child sex offences .

Adam Isaac, of Maesgwynne, South Wales, is facing jail for crimes against two boys aged 13 and 14 and will be sentenced when he returns to court next month.

The 22-year-old pleaded guilty to six charges of causing or inciting child prostitution or child pornography, one charge of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child and one charge of possessing indecent images.

Merthyr Crown Court heard the offences were committed between August 2015 and January 2016.

The pervert used Minecraft to lure his victims in
Sue Ferrier, defending, asked Judge Richard Twomlow for an adjournment for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

She said: “He does understand that these are serious matters and he has been trying to address these issues himself.”

The prosecution did not open the case against Isaac but will be applying for a sexual harm prevention order at the next hearing

Isaac was released on conditional bail until he is sentenced on December 16.

The judge told him: “You have pleaded guilty to a number of serious offences. I am going to ask for a pre-sentence report so the court knows more about you.

“The fact I am doing this is no indication of the sort of sentence you will expect. In all likelihood it will be a prison sentence – you must understand that.”
