Paedophilia is an act wherein legally aged adults observe an ongoing sexual attraction to teens under the pre-pubertal stage.
Police finally caught a man for grooming and meeting a 13-year-old girl and was jailed for 16 years.
Jason Evans, aged 36, arranged a meeting to see a supposedly 13-year-old girl at the Stonehouse Railway Station in Gloucestershire after convincing her online.
Little did he know that the supposed “girl” was a bogus online account made by the police to arrange his arrest and imprisonment. After agreeing to meet at the station, the police quickly put him under arrest.
Evans confessed at Gloucestershire Crown Court of grooming and possessing lewd photos of young girls.
Judge Ian Lawrie QC informed Evans that he was posing certain dangers to young girls, and there was a huge risk that he could commit further crimes if not apprehended and arrested quickly.
The police devised a trap after intelligence suggested that Evans was using fake online profiles to target young girls between the ages of 12 to 16.
Evans has an ingrained addiction to children.
He convinced girls to send naked photos online of themselves and offered to pay their train fares to meet for sex.
Fortunately, the court didn’t get any news that not one girl agreed to meet Evans. If that happened, we wouldn’t know what had happened to those girls.
Those number of events happened while Evans was still under the subject for a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. This caused the police to set up the operation to stop his perversion as soon as possible.
Police are encouraging the public to report such acts since existing laws are already implemented to prevent these certain kinds of crimes. Perversion and paedophilia can lead to more serious crimes in the future if not taken care of right away. Hence, the situation needed immediate action.
