Pervert caught by paedophile hunting team

A perverted pensioner has been jailed after he groomed what he believed was a child

John Oakland, 74 of Bobbersmill, Nottingham appeared at Nottingham Crown Court where he admitted:

  • Possession of indecent photograph / pseudo-photgraph of a child

  • Show/distribute – indecent photograph/pseudo-photgraph of a child

  • Adult attempt to engage in sexual communication with a child

When confronted by the team, Oakland said I was waiting for this day to come as he knew what he was doing was wrong but he couldn’t help it as he was bored.
