Pervert sent obscene messages to paedophile
Pervert Jason McCouaig has been jailed after he sent obscene messages to a paedophile.
The 40-year-old also sent pictures of two girls to sex offender Michael Bickerton after communicating with him online for a week last summer.
The pair engaged in ‘highly sexualised conversations’ and met in a North Staffordshire pub where the defendant gave him girls’ knickers and they ‘indulged in their sexual fantasies’.
Now McCouaig has been jailed for 10 months at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.
Prosecutor Paul Spratt told the court: “The defendant told Bickerton he was sexually attracted to two schoolgirls. They spoke of what sexual activity they were planning to get up to.
“He sent a pair of knickers to Bickerton who sent an image to the defendant of him wearing them. The defendant took pairs of knickers to a local pub where the pair engaged in conversation. They also committed a sexual act on each other, with the knickers as an aid.”
The defendant asked Bickerton not to send any more images after the sex offender sent a picture of a naked child sat on his lap.
Mr Spratt added: “By August 21 last year the defendant decided the conversation should cease because he knew Bickerton was planning to commit a sexual offence in Cambridgeshire. He told Bickerton to delete the conversation with him and he deleted it on his own phone.”
But 49-year-old Bickerton did not delete the conversation and the defendant was arrested at work on October 11.
The court heard Bickerton, of Minshall Street, Fenton, was jailed for eight years in May after being convicted of arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence.
McCouaig, who has since left North Staffordshire and now lives in Oxfordshire, pleaded guilty to publishing an obscene article between August 14 and 22 last year.
Judge Paul Glenn said the offending was so serious it had to be marked with an immediate jail sentence.
He said: “You engaged in highly sexualised conversation and took knickers for use in sexual activity.
“You knew full well the sort of individual you were in contact with. You met Bickerton and provided him with the underwear so you could indulge in your fantasies. The messages between you were disgusting.
“You are an intelligent man, with good qualifications and a good job and your own home. Frankly, your actions beggar belief.”
McCouaig was ordered to pay £1,250 costs.
