Re-offending pervert sentenced 

A man who was caught by paedophile hunting team ‘Groom Resisters Scotland’ was already on the sex offenders register

Neil King of Liverpool appeared in court where he admitted:

  • Breaching his sexual offences prevention order

  • Sexual communication with a child

The court was told that King was already on the sex offenders register when he contacted who he believed was a young boy online. King sent sexually charged messages with a view of meeting the underage boy for sexual activity.

However, the child was not a real child and instead was a decoy from online child protection team ‘Groom Resisters Scotland’.

The team handed their evidence to police and King was arrested, charged and remanded

The judge handed King a two year prison sentence.

An Indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order was issued, and King was also told that he must register as a sex offender for life
