Pervert caught by paedophile hunting team

A pervert who groomed what he believed was a schoolgirl online has been sentenced

Ronald Bush, of Southend on Sea appeared at court where he admitted sexual communication with a child

The court was told that Bush had contacted the online profile of who he believed belonged to a schoolgirl. Bush sent highly sexualised chat with the intent of engaging the child into sexual activity

However, the child did not exist and was instead a decoy from paedophile hunting team ‘No more Silent Voices’ who pose online as children in order to catch sexual predators who target kids

The judge handed Bush a 14 month prison sentence

He was told to register as a sex offender for ten years and a ten year sexual harm prevention order was also imposed
