Teenager posed as woman to get boys to send him indecent videos
A teenager posed as a woman online to lure boys into sending him indecent images of themselves.
Alfie Williams-Pope was a high achiever who obtained good exam grades and an apprentiship.
But Bristol Crown Court heard he adopted the persona of “Zoe Jones” to entice youngsters to send him obscene videos and photographs.
The 19-year-old, of Hall Street in Bedminster, pleaded guilty to making indecent images of children.
Judge Mark Horton jailed handed him a three-year community order with a sex offender programme.
He was ordered to register as a sex offender for five years and was banned from working with children and vulnerable adults.
The judge told him: “You created a false Facebook account and represented that you were a female.
“The purpose was to contact young boys to persuade them to send photographs and video of themselves performing sexual acts.
“There was no suggestion of direct contact.”
Chloe Griggs, prosecuting, said in February 2017 it came to light that two boys had been contacted via Facebook messenger by Zoe Jones, who asked them to send her footage of them performing a sex act.
Police identified two videos which had been sent and tracked down Williams-Pope.
A search warrant was executed at his address and, on a computer tablet, police recovered three Category A videos of boys aged 12 and 34 Category B images of boys aged 11 to 15.
Williams-Pope was interviewed and made no comment to all questions.
