Man was caught twice by the same online ‘vigilante group’

A man jailed for trying to meet a child for sexual purposes was released from jail and propositioned sex with someone he thought was a child again.

Now the 44-year-old, has admitted breaching a Sexual Risk Order by talking online to a supposed child again, who turned out to be a member of the exact same vigilante group.

He has also pleaded guilty to attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child. He now faces a maximum five years’ jail for the breach of the order and a maximum two years’ jail for the new offence.
