Today Tuesday 19th September 2017 a painter and decorator from Halstead, Essex was working in Dunmow and decided to groom a young child online and arrange to meet them for sex in his van. The male arrived and when met by Essex Police officers the excuses and lies started rolling, but as we keep all the digital evidence and provide this to Essex Police the lies will hopefully end in a charge.
Please be aware that this person has been arrested after one or more of our investigators were contacted by them. They thought they were contacting a child under the age of 16. We do not entrap anyone and its the persons choice to meet the person they think is a child. Some cases we are unable to name them straight away due to the CPS requirements. They have been arrested on suspicion, and its down to the CPS to either NFA them or charge them for them to appear in court. If they are charged and the case goes to court, we will publish the entire chat logs, pictures and names of the people involved. If the Police feel they are unlikely to bring conviction against them, it doesn’t mean they are not guilty, and we will then publish the chat logs for the public to see.
