Pervert caught by paedophile huntung team

A pervert who was caught by a paedophile hunting team, grooming who he believed was a 12-year-old girl has been jailed

Jon Hard of London was caught in 2018, and has finally been sentenced after he was issued with a warrant for his arrest after failing to attend court

He sent particularly vile messages to who he thought was a 12 year old child with the full intent of engaging that child into sexual activity

He sent her sexual photos and videos of himself and wanted her to perform a sex act on herself.

However, the child was infact a decoy from paedophile hunting team ‘Innocent Voices’

Hard was found guilty of:

  • Sexual communications with a child under 13

  • Attempting to entice a child under the age of 13 into sexual activity

  • Two counts of attempting to get a child under the age of 13 to look at a sexual photo

The judge at Croydon Crown Court sentenced him to: 

  • Two years and six months in prison

  • Life on the Sex Offenders Register

  • Life on SHPO
