Stoke-on-Trent paedophile sentenced for grooming child

A Stoke-on-Trent man has been given a three-year rehabilitation order, after pleading guilty to sexually grooming a child.

Pervert Majid Mohammed appeared at court today after he groomed an ‘underage girl’ before attempting to meet her at Hanley’s Central Forest Park.

But when the 23-year-old arrived, he was instead met by members of Creep Catchers UK.

Video footage of the confrontation was then uploaded on to social media later that day.

Mohammed, of Nile Street, Burslem, could be seen sitting on the grass with his head in his hands.

Police officers later arrested and charged him with attempting to meet a girl under 16 years of age following online grooming.

The defendant went on to plead guilty to the offence.

As well as the rehabilitation order, Mohammed was given a 10-year sexual harm prevention order and placed on the sex offenders register for five years at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
