Yep he was there. I'd say hes happy he went too.

Judge just jailed Creaven for 18 months.

"masterbated to pornography involving boys and girls as young as 8........ had a list of names of young girls and two boxes of condoms when arrested in Leeds.......he said he would talk to children online and at times buy credit for their phones so they could talk to him, but when they blocked him he would do something as revenge, such as put on Facebook that they had sent him naked photos.”"

Enjoy prison bud.
Sounds like he pled guilty at the earliest opportunity and co-operated with police, so he will probably get a 20% reduction on jail time. This was a category 3 grooming offence, ie there was no child he met and harmed offline. 18 months is the recommended sentence.

Over 50% of people, with no previous convictions, in this situation get a suspended sentence and a supervision order.

So he must have been a right creep.

But when he is "cured", will RTE take him back. Can he sue RTE as he will say he was ill and should not have been sacked. Also this raises a lot of questions such as did people in RTE know what he was up to? Are there rings involved here? etc etc...
Jesus. Grow up.

There was no child there was someone pretending to be a child. Not defending him but I think it would be more serious if a child actually existed in this case.

As Ive explained before: an inordinate percentage of the online paedophile cases in the UK originate from persons pretending to be children. That poses the question of whether its detracting from saving actual children.

Makes little difference, given the chance he would have got some poor child. Has he been with other children or do we know his past grooming conquests? Paedos meet karma in prison.

If Facebook introduced age verification like some dating sites do, it would wipe out the problem of online child grooming on the website (or nearly).

It would move the problem somewhere else, snapchat, instagram, etc kids are online, preventing them from being on facebook won't fix the problem. There is not some simple fix that solves this.

or maybe you need to learn english first before you start trying to scramble for virtue signalling points


Tear someone a new ****************************************** - Oxford Reference

"to attack someone savagely, either physically or verbally. ..."

Pot kettle

You were virtue signalling when you posted your comment, it is very common when discussing any kind of sexual predatory behaviour for people to virtue signal by wishing extreme violence or death on the person accused or convicted, it is a statement however convincing or not that "I am not one of them".
