Pervert ex-soldier jailed after persuading girls to send him naked pictures

Pervert ex-soldier Lee Hill was jailed after he admitted preying on two
Scottish schoolgirls.

The 34-year-old dad-of-three contacted the girls – aged 12 and 13 – via the BBM smartphone app and persuaded them to send him naked pictures.

“It is not clear how they first started to communicate with each other,” Colonel Nigel Jones, prosecuting, told a court martial.

“The police in Scotland were tipped off about it and contacted the Royal Military Police.

“Hill, a private soldier, was stationed in Fallingbostel, Germany, with the 3rd Battalion of The Mercian Regiment at the time and he was arrested the same day.

“The chat between Hill and the girls was sexually explicit.”

Col Jones told the court martial in Colchester, Essex, the 13-year-old sent Hill explicit selfies.

“She was spoken to by the police in Scotland and told them it was just like having sex and that he had sent her pictures of his penis,” said Col Jones.

The 12-year-old also sent him naked photos.

When the Service police raided Hill’s accommodation in Fallingbostel they discovered he’d also beendownloading indecent images of children from the internet.

Hill admitted various child sexual abuse images charges.

Hill was jailed for four years and will be on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.
