Smiling pervert caught by Dark Justice walks free from court despite arranging to meet child for sex



Callum Jennings was caught out by  paedophile hunters when he turned up to meet a 13-year-old girl.

Jennings thought he had been chatting online to an underage schoolgirl he met on a dating site but Newcastle Crown Court heard he had been duped by Dark Justice, an organisation set up to track down men who want sex with young girls.

During online conversations with the girl, the 22-year-old, from Newcastle, sent a picture of his penis, a video of himself masturbating and engaged in graphic sexual chat.

The court heard Jennings arranged to meet up with the girl in Newcastle on April 18.

Prosecutor Sue Hirst told the court: “Members of Dark Justice went to the meeting point and saw the defendant.

“They spoke to him and asked him if he considered meeting a 13-year-old and sending the messages he had sent her to be acceptable. He stated they were meeting as friends.”




Jennings told police he had been “stupid”.

He pleaded guilty to attempting to meet a child following grooming and attempting to cause a child to watch a sexual act.

Recorder Toby Hedworth QC sentenced Jennings to 16 months imprisonment, suspended for two years, with rehabilitation requirements.

He must abide by a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and sign the Sex Offenders Register for ten years.

The judge said it was unclear whether Jennings intended to have full sex with the underage girl.

He told Jennings: “You were informed almost immediately that she was only

13. Notwithstanding that, you maintained your interest.

“I find your interest in her, where perhaps was initially wanting company, your interest became sexual almost immediately.

“Because of the good offices of Dark Justice fortunately there never was a real child. This you didn’t know, it was a virtual relationship you were engaging in.”

The judge said Dark Justice carry out “important work” and was convinced Jennings has learned a ” salutory” lesson.

He said he was convinced Jennings, who has never been in trouble before, would not be back in court again.

Brian Hegarty, defending, said Jennings had stated during his messages with the girl that he couldn’t have sex with the girl because of her age and had asked if she had a spare room when they discussed him going to her home.

Mr Hegarty said Jennings had said he was unsure about the meeting and added: “He had grave reservations about what he was doing. He knew he was behaving very foolishly.

The court heard Jennings was “crestfallen” and is sorry for his behavior.

Douglas Smith

Moment paedophile arrives to take virginity of 13-year-old girl – only to be caught by Dark Justice

A paedophile was caught on camera by a vigilante group when he thought he was meeting a 13-year-old girl for sex.

Douglas Smith thought he was chatting with a schoolgirl through Facebook and encouraged her to meet up so he could take her virginity.

But when the 56-year-old turned up to meet his underage target, he was confronted by members of Dark Justice, who pose as children online to catch sex offenders.

Smith was already on the Sex Offenders Register as a result of an earlier conviction for viewing indecent images when he started chatting to the ‘girl’.

Newcastle Crown Court heard during their five-day conversation in June, he told the girl he loved her, said she was ‘sexy’ and she had a beautiful smile.

Prosecutor Rachael Landin said: ‘In response to some questions in relation to whether matters would hurt he said he penis wasn’t very big.’

Smith, of North Shields, Tyne and Wear, was arrested when he turned up at Central Station in Newcastle to meet the girl but was confronted by Dark Justice, who filmed the meeting.






He pleaded guilty to attempting to meet a child after grooming and breach of registration requirements by failing to tell the authorities where he was living.

He was jailed for a year and eight months and ordered to serve an extended licence period after he is freed. He must now sign also the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Judge Jeremy Freedman told him: ‘You clearly intended there should be full sexual intercourse, even though you believed the girl to be a 13-year-old child who had no sexual experience of any sort.

‘The person you in fact communicated with was with an organisation called Dark Justice, who track down people such as you, who attempt to groom children though social networks.

‘It is deeply concerning you have not changed your behaviour in any way, despite being on a sex offenders treatment programme.

‘You have no real insight into the harm our actions could potentially cause.

‘I think you are intent, if left to your own devices, on having sexual relationships with young people, even though you know very well it was wrong to so do and very harmful to potential victims of such offences.’

Smith claimed he was ‘lonely’ when he started the online conversation and had been ‘flattered’.





Michael List

TELL ME UR BRA SIZE FIRST Pervert who sent lewd pics to ‘underage girls’ snared by Dark Justice

Michael List admitted sending “hundreds” of explicit pictures and graphic messages to two young teens while his live-in girlfriend was out at work.




He confessed he engaged in the behaviour for a “sexual kick” after meeting girls on the networking site Skout.

But he was unaware he had actually been caught in a trap by members of Dark Justice – an anonymous group which targets men who want to engage in sex chat or acts with underage girls.

Newcastle Crown Court heard List first started chatting to who he thought was a 13-year-old girl called Sara in June last year.

List gave the girl, who told him her young age, his phone number so they could engage in explicit chat via Whatsapp.

About a month later, he started sending sexual messages to another girl he met over Skout, who claimed to be called Stacey and told him she was 15.

She had the same profile picture as “Sara”.

When “Stacey” agreed to a meeting with List and claimed to be on her way, he backed out of the arrangement and said “he thought it was best if they did
not meet up”.


Dark Justice handed the chat logs they had been having with List over to the police and he was arrested.

Despite pleading guilty to attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity, the 41-year-old, of Chester Le Street, escaped jail.

Judge Penny Moreland instead gave him a suspended sentence because he had changed his mind about meeting the young girl.

Prosecutor Anne Richardson told the court: “He said he had arranged to meet the girl but then decided against it as he had a partner and did not really want to meet someone else.

“He denied ever having met any of the people with whom he chatted over the Internet for sex.

“Although he could not remember the specific chat with the girls he was asked about, he did agree that he had shown photos of his penis on WhatsApp while corresponding with them.

“He said that he lived with his partner and that she would most probably have been at work whilst he was messaging.

“He said he had no intentions of meeting anyone and had done it for a sexual kick”.

List said during one of the messages he would “lose his job, his house and his life” if his online behaviour was exposed.

Judge Moreland sentenced List to six months imprisonment, suspended for 12 months with group work programme and £500 costs.

List must sign the sex offenders register and abide by a sexual harm prevention order for seven years.


The judge said: “Hundreds of messages were exchanged.

“The messages were highly sexual in content, you asked for indecent images and sent indecent images of yourself.

“You discussed the possibly of performing a range of sexual activities.

“Unusually for cases of this sort you cancelled the meeting and thought better of your plan to meet.

“For that reason and that reason alone I am prepared to suspend the sentence.”

The messages were highly sexual in content, you asked for indecent images and sent indecent images of yourself.
Judge Penny Moreland

Peter Walsh, depending, said List had a good work record and no history of similar offending.

Mr Walsh said List had a “fixation” with online activity and is willing to work on his problems.

He added: “When the opportunity was there to actually meet a young girl he thought was interested in serial activity he made but clear he wouldn’t meet her.

“That’s powerful mitigation.”
