Pervert FAINTS as he is snared by online paedophile hunters

This is the moment a pervert who tried to send naked pictures to 13-year-old girls FAINTS as he is snared by paedophile hunters.

Neil Davies, 47, was caught out by a group calling themselves The Soloceptors, in conjunction with Saving Our Kid’s Souls and Net Justice, who made fake profiles posing as teenage girls.

Davies sent pictures of his genitals to the hunters, despite being told repeatedly that he was contacting underage girls, and described wearing a child’s skirt.

Although he made no arrangements to meet the under-age girls, the married dad-of-two was lured to the car-park of B&Q in Delph Lane, Winwick, where he believed he was meeting a teenager

Footage taken by the group shows the visibly shaken Davies confess that he had been contacting children, telling one member: “I just don’t get any attention at home from the Mrs.”

As the shock of his situation sinks in he is offered the chance to sit down by the group, but his legs buckle and he has to be assisted.

He tells them: “I apologise profusely, I will never do this again.”

Davies, of Allenby Avenue in Crosby, was arrested at the scene, on April 11, after the group contacted police and handed over evidence of the sordid conversations.

During his police interviews Davies also volunteered that he had paid a 15-year-old girl to perform a sex act, although unbeknownst to Davies the girl turned out to be 17.

He later admitted two counts of attempting to cause a child to look at sexual images; two of attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child, and one of paying for for the sexual services of a child under 18.

Frank Dillon, prosecuting at Liverpool Crown Court yesterday, said Davies had been using the username ‘Tick Tock’ on the social media site Kik Messenger when he contacted profiles set up by the Soloceptors.

He said: “He engaged in sexual conversations with the profile. At no point did she, in the relevant exchanges, engage in that sexual chat. During the conversation she said she was 13.”

Davies sent pictures of his penis and told the girl he was wearing a girl’s skirt.

When asked why he said: “I’m feeling horny.”

She replied: “You wouldn’t fit into mine, I’m only 13.”

Jeremy Rawson, defending, said his client had lost his job as a result of the conviction but was being supported by his wife.

Judge Andrew Menary, QC, sentencing Davies, commended the actions of The Soloceptors.

He said: “The activities of these so called paedophile hunters are not always welcome and are not always responsible. But on the information I have received on this particular group it seems they have been responsible, and have done everything properly.”

Judge Menary said Davies’ immediate confessions, lack of any previous convictions and the fact he had not tried to meet the under age girls meant he could spare him immediate custody.

He was sentenced to a three year community order with 200 hours of unpaid work and requirements to complete the Horizon sex offenders programme.

Judge Menary said: “You seem to have lost your way online and have been corrupted. As a consequence you have gone on a very dark journey. The hope is the sentence will assist you and protect the public in the future.”

Davies was also handed a sexual harm prevention order restricting his internet access and access to children, and ordered to sign the sex offenders register for five years.
