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.”

Bradley Masterson thought he was meeting up with a 13-year-old called Roxy but in fact he had been chatting online to Newcastle-based Dark Justice.

A court heard the communications between the 19-year-old and the fictional girl quickly became sexual and Masterson suggested they meet up.

An arrangement was made for them to meet at the Centre for Life, in Newcastle city centre, but when Masterson turned up Dark Justice and the police were lying in wait and he was arrested.

Now the teenager, never in trouble before and described as “immature”, has been given a suspended prison sentence at Newcastle Crown Court after he admitted attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming.

Prosecutor Alec Burns said Dark Justice had set up a profile on social media website under the name Roxy.

The profile said Roxy was 18 but, as is common practice for the group, they then told Masterson she was in fact well below the age of consent.

Mr Burns said: “The communication did not go on for long before he asked to meet her.

“He asked her to send a photograph of herself when she was getting changed.


“They arranged to meet at the Centre for Life and the defendant was met by Dark Justice and the police arrested him.”

Masterson, of Bedford Street, North Shields , told the police the girl’s profile said she was 18 and said he only wanted to meet her as a friend but he was unable to explain why messages of a sexual nature had been sent, the court heard.

He pleaded guilty to attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming and was given 12 months in a young offender institution, suspended for two years with supervision. He must also sign the sex offenders register for 10 years and was made subject to a sexual harm prevention order for five years.

Recorder Ben Nolan said Masterson had been “entrapped” into committing the offence.

The judge added: “Having said that, you responded to those messages and showed enthusiasm for committing the offence to those who sent you those messages, albeit there was never a child in existence in this case.

“You appear to have an unhealthy interest in young girls and you have got to get away from that.”

Tony Hawks, defending, said: “He is an immature 19-year-old, which goes without saying given the way he behaved.

“He comes from a respectable family and his mother is very upset about what happened.

“He has an offer of working on a fishing boat if he is allowed his liberty. He has done some work on a boat in North Shields.”

Paedophile with previous caution for underage sex was snared by Dark Justice

Paedophile with previous caution for underage sex was snared by Dark Justice

A 25-year-old pervert was jailed for 16 months after he tried to groom a 13-year-old girl for sex and was snared by a group of paedophile hunters.
Adam Bushell, of Holy Stone Avenue, Blyth, Northumberland, believed he had been talking to a shy schoolgirl online before he arranged to meet up with her on Westmoreland Road, Newcastle.
But Bushell had in fact been communicating with members of Dark Justice, an anonymous group set up to snare perverts who lurk online, who waited for him to arrive with police officers.

Bushell, a pizza delivery driver and handyman, was arrested and admitted attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming.
The 25-year-old, who has a previous conviction for covering a heavily pregnant woman’s mouth with duct tape during an attack, has also been cautioned in the past for having sex with an underage girl.
Judge Tim Gittins said Bushell’s clear intention was to have penetrative sex if the underage girl had shown up, if she was keen.
Bushell had told the ‘teen’ her age put him off ‘a bit’ but promised he would be gentle with her.
The judge said: ‘Sadly, there are occasions when real girls, against their better judgement, would engage with such activities and they need to be protected from themselves.

‘You were told at an early stage in this conversation she was only 13. Notwithstanding that, you continued to communicate.
‘In fact, it turned out to be a member of the organisation Dark Justice, who had set up a fictitious account to identify people preying on young females.’



Bushell, who is now making plans to marry his partner, was jailed for 16 months and must abide by a sexual harm prevention order and sign the sex offenders register for the next 10 years.

Prosecutor Neil Pallister told the court Bushell had started talking to the decoy on an adult dating website and soon started exchanging private messages on Whatsapp.

During the conversations, Bushell asked for nude pictures and sent shirtless snaps of himself, despite believing the girl to be just 13-years-old.

When asked if her young age put him off, Bushell said it did ‘a bit’.
Mr Pallister told the court: ‘He said he couldn’t have sex or kiss due to her age but in the same conversation he said if she had sex he would be gentle.’

Mr Pallister said it was in 2011 Bushell was convicted of battery after putting duct tape over the mouth of a woman who was 33 weeks pregnant and given a suspended sentence.

He assaulted the same woman later that year and was jailed.
Bushell received a caution in 2010, when he was 19, for having sex with a 15-year-old.
Alec Burns, defending, said Bushell had been trying to meet an adult on the website and had not set out to talk to a child.
Mr Burns added: ‘He is now engaged. He has made no wedding arrangements because this hearing may prevent him doing that in the near future.’
