Wayne Sudama, 41 caught in Dark Justice sting

A pervert from South Tyneside claimed he only turned up to warn a teenage girl about internet dangers when he arrived to meet her.

Wayne Sudama was confronted by paedophile hunters after believing he had been chatting to a 13-year-old schoolgirl called Roxy over dating site Waplog in 2015 but had been duped by Dark Justice, a group that searches the internet looking for men wanting underage sex.

Newcastle Crown Court heard the 41-year-old dad, of Cambridge Avenue, Hebburn, told the girl he thought he was talking to “you are so hot” and, after inviting her to stay at his home, suggested he would get vodka so they could “snuggle up and take it from there”.


The court heard that, during the exchange of messages, Suduma told “Roxy” she could sleep in his bed and arranged to meet her at the Centre for Life in Newcastle. Paul Reid, prosecuting, told the court: “A Facebook search revealed his name and photograph and Dark Justice went to the Centre for Life.


“The defendant turned up at around 8pm. They identified him from the photographs and called the police.”


The court heard Sudama ran off when he was confronted by the group but was recorded on video and he later handed himself in to the police. Mr Reid added: “He said he had no intention of doing anything sexual and said he wanted to shout at her to ask what she was doing talking in this manner online.


He said he had children of his own. He said he had no sexual intent. “His intention had been to warn her about what she was doing.” Sudama admitted attempting to meet a child after grooming.


Judge Stephen Earl sentenced him to 14 months in jail, suspended for 18 months, and ten years on the sex offenders register. The judge told him: “This was more than just the actions of someone who had realised there was a child online that needs telling off. Clearly, you have not meant that, by virtue of your plea.


Even if that was the case, you took it way past that point.” Judge Earl accepted Sudama had never been in trouble before and said he did not expect to see him before the court again.


The judge told him:

“Your good name goes and you are publicly humiliated.”


David Callan, defending, said Sudama has a job and led a “blameless” life up to now. He said no sexual or pornographic images were sent by Sudama during the messaging.

Pervert who was SPARED prison for sexual activity with a girl, 13, is jailed for two years after sending explicit images to ‘paedophile hunters’ Dark Justice posing as ANOTHER young child

A pervert who was spared jail when he groomed a 13-year-old girl is now behind bars after vigilante paedophile hunters caught him trying to meet another child.

Richard Oglesby, 26, was told to sign the sex offenders’ register in 2011 after he had sexual activity with an underage teenager he befriended on Facebook.

He underwent treatment to try and stop his offending but has now been jailed for two years after being trapped by a Dark Justice sting.

Newcastle Crown Court heard the group, who pose as children online to expose paedophiles, had set up a profile on a messaging site called Scout.

Oglesby made contact with the ‘girl’ – who Dark Justice named Hayley – late last year, then quickly said ‘bye’ when told it belonged to a 13-year-old.

But the court heard that within weeks, Oglesby got in touch with the ‘girl’ again and initially engaged in friendly chat, which quickly turned sexual.

Prosecutor Emma Dowling told the court: ‘He asked, “do you want some company in bed?”

‘Eleven minutes later, he sent another message asking “are you a virgin?”.’

The court heard the graphic chat developed into Oglesby sending the ‘girl’ a picture of his penis, with the caption ‘mmm, you like?’ and asking for naked pictures of the schoolgirl in exchange.

When Oglesby turned up to meet the ‘girl’, so he could ‘get a kiss’, he was confronted by Dark Justice and drove off.

The group, who have been responsible for dozens of convictions of paedophiles, tracked him to his home and handed a file of evidence about him to the police

Oglesby, from Sunderland, admitted attempting to meet a child after grooming.

Judge Amanda Rippon sentenced him to two years behind bars with a lifelong Sexual Harm Prevention Order and ten years on the sex offenders’ register.

The judge told him: ‘You began conversations with what you understood to be a 13-year-old girl.

‘The conversations were relatively platonic for the first few weeks but that changed and you decided you would ask her whether or not she was a virgin and whether she wanted company in bed.

‘You knew it was wrong. The messages continued, you wanted to meet her, kiss her, cuddle her.

‘You knew it was wrong, you made it plain during the messages.’

The court heard it was in August 2011 Oglesby was given a community order or having sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl and he has breached court orders relating to that conviction since.

Judge Rippon told him: ‘I am quite satisfied you pose a risk to underage girls, girls under 16.’

Jacqueline Coxon, defending, told the court Oglesby fails to appreciate ‘sexual boundaries’ but did not intentionally set out to chat to a child when he went on the site.

Miss Coxon added: ‘He is a hard working young man who has had a decent upbringing.

‘He accepts there is still work that needs to be done to prevent further offending.’
