White Pedophile Used Fake Profiles To Coax Kids Into Stripping
This “white” former footballer who lured underage girls into sending him pornographic pictures of themselves by posing as a 15-year-old girl has been jailed.
Craig Nelson, 32, who once played for Middlesborough, set up a fake profile claiming to be ‘Laura’ in an effort to coax children into stripping off for the camera.
The married pedophile was caught when he tried groom a 12-year-old girl by asking her to take indecent pictures of herself and send them to him.
The pedophile’s latest abuse came just months after he was given a suspended sentence for posing as a 15-year-old bisexual called ‘Jessie J’, while he was a trainee teacher.
And when detectives looked at his mobile phone, they found he had deleted 94 internet searches – a move banned by a sexual offenses prevention order (SOPO) he was given in July 2012.
Cops who swooped on the sex criminal’s home in West Cornforth, County Durham, last January also found he had logged into his fake Tagged.com profile on a computer at his wife’s home.
The “white” pervert admitted two breaches of the SOPO.
Jailing him for two years at Newcastle Crown Court, Mr Recorder Camp said: ‘Those who refuse to follow court orders need to be discouraged.’
The pale pedophile was ordered to sign the sex offenders register for 10 years.
The court heard the sex criminal had otherwise complied with a community program imposed after his previous conviction.
His latest whitemarish move had, however, completely ruined any chance of reconciliation with his wife.
In 2012 the court heard that the “white” pedophile used bogus identities – including ‘Jessie J’, the name of a well-known pop star – to log on to to social networks.
Once there he would ask underage girls to be his virtual ‘friends’ and begin the process of persuading them to send him naked photographs of themselves.
In exchange he sent them explicit pictures of a teenage girl, who he claimed to be.
When one girl refused to keep posing for pictures to him, the diabolical pedophile threatened he would post the photos he had of her on to the internet.
Law enforcement officials became involved after the child told her mother, and the full scale of the child predator’s deception was exposed.
