Convicted pervert caught by paedophile hunting team

A man who was spared a prison sentence last year after he was caught grooming a child online has been jailed after speaking to underage children again.

Ryan Hancock, formerly of Moston Lane, Manchester has now been jailed for two years & three months after communicating sexually with what he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

Hancock asked the girl if she would like to meet in a hotel room and engage in sexual activity, after previously telling her he was a child protection police officer

He threatened her by saying, that if she didn’t send him indecent images of herself then she would be arrested.

In addition to his prison sentence he must sign the Sex Offenders Register and abide by a SHPO (Sexual Harm Prevention Order).
