Convicted pervert caught for second time

An already convicted pervert that was spared prison earlier this year after he groomed what he believed was a schoolgirl has been caught again just two months after being sentenced.

Unemployed Warren Milne, 24 of Newcastle appeared at court where he faced two counts of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity 

His latest offences took place online, and involved two female decoys from online child protection team ‘Predator Hunters’

Milne believed the decoys were girls aged 11 and 13 years old.

Almost immediately, Milne sent sexually explicit messages. 

During the next few weeks, Milne sent pictures of his penis to the decoys and tried to coax them into sending indecent mages of themselves.

He continued to pressure them, which concerned the members of ‘Predator Hunters’ to such a degree that they felt they had to meet him immediately to expose him and his activities to the police.

The team went to his address and confronted him.

His parents who were present were informed of his re-offending, before the police arrived to arrest him

Milne admitted the latest offences and the judge remanded him in custody to appear for sentencing next month

The court was told that Milne was already a convicted sex offender who had been sentenced in June this year. 

The pervert groomed what he believed was a schoolgirl online, but was exposed by online child protection team ‘The Hunted One’

On that occasion, the judge allowed Milne to walk free from court with an 8 month prison sentence which was suspended for two years.

He was ordered to take part in a 54 day sexual offender programme. He was given a 10 year sexual harm prevention order and told that he must register as a sex offender for 10 years.
