A convicted paedophile has been jailed after he was caught grooming who he believed was a child online

Timothy Edwards, 61 of Huddersfield appeared at court where he admitted breaching his sexual harm prevention order and one count of sexual communication with a child

The court was told that Edwards had contacted the online profile of who he believed was a 13 year old girl. He went on to send sexually explicit messages and images.

However, the girl did not exist, and was instead a decoy from paedophile hunting team ‘Dark Light’

Edwards was sentenced to a 30 Month custodial sentence, and will be required to register as a sex offender for life
