Nuneaton man arranged to meet “14-year-old girl” at train station following sexual communication online

A man’s plan to meet who he thought was a 14-year-old girl for sex was foiled when he was intercepted by police and arrested.

Christopher Aubertin, 37, of Edward Street, Nuneaton was on his way to meet the “girl” on 14 June when he was stopped by police and arrested in Nuneaton town centre.

Aubertin started messaging the “girl” the day before and sent indecent images of himself.

In reality, the girl didn’t exist, and police were alerted.

Aubertin had also engaged in online chat with someone he believed to be a 15-year-old girl. It was infact a decoy from a paedophile hunting team

A search of his house led to the seizure of cannabis.

While in custody, Aubertin smeared his own faeces over the cell walls and threatened to throw cups of urine at officers.

Aubertin admitted to attempting to engage a child in sexual communication, arranging the commission of a child sex offence, possession of cannabis and criminal damage.

Aubertin was sentenced at Warwick Crown Court last week where he was handed a total of three-and-a-half years in prison.

He was also handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) to prevent further offending, and placed on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely.

Spon Eng thug jailed for ‘evil’ attacks on teen girlfriend

A Sadistic thug who punched and kicked his teenage girlfriend before slicing her arms with a knife and shaving her head has been jailed for eight years

Christopher Aubertin, of Gloucester Street, Spon End, also poured hot water over his victim and stubbed a cigarette out on her face after accusing the girl of cheating on him.

Aubertin, aged 25, pleaded guilty at Coventry Crown Court on Friday to one charge of wounding with intent Prosecuting, William Rickarby said Aubertin started a relationship with his victim four years ago – when she was just 14.

She moved into his flat when she turned 18 earlier this year.

He carried out a series of sadistic attacks on her in July because he believed she had slept with someone else.

Mr Rickarby described how in a single day Aubertin kicked and punched the girl all over her body, including her head and face, stamped on her, hit her head on a wall, sliced her arms with a knife and stabbed her in the leg.

The following day he continued his attack by kicking and punching her, stubbing a cigarette out on her face, pouring hot water on her head and legs and shaving off her hair.

He said: “She described him as being really evil said the attack was absolute agony. She thought she was going to die.”

When Aubertin left to go to a shop, she fled to her mother’s house and called police.

The court heard Aubertin has previous convictions for assault, including battery for an attack on a former girlfriend.

Judge Peter Barrie sentenced Aubertin to eight years in prison.

He will serve half inside and the remainder on licence. He also imposed a restraining order to stop Aubertin contacting the victim.
