Peter John Reynolds, 43 of North Yorkshire was sentenced yesterday (14/11/16) for attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming.
He sent multiple graphics messages and pictures of his private parts and told the ’14-year-old’ Dark Justice decoy how he wanted to have sex with her.
He arranged 2 meetings but failed to attend both so Dark Justice handed their evidence to Durham Constabulary because at the time Reynolds claimed he lived within the County Durham area, but it soon became apparent he lived within the North Yorkshire area and was arrested by North Yorkshire police and quizzed by Detectives.
He was sentenced to nine months imprisonment, suspended for twenty four months, with sex offenders registration for ten years.
Reynolds, of North Yorkshire, now has to abide by a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for seven years which places various restrictions on his access to the internet & children.
