A Corby man who was caught having sex with online activists posing as two young girls has pleaded guilty to three offences.
Trevor Booth, from Beverley Walk, thought he was talking to young teenagers, but was actually caught off guard by online groups CIM (Children’s Innocence Matters) and COST (Child Online Safety Team).
Booth, 25, pleaded guilty at Northampton Magistrates’ Court to two charges of sexual communication with a child and one of attempting to organize or facilitate a sexual offense against a child.
He had asked a girl he believed to be between 13 and 17 to meet him and engage in a sex act.
The perv had started online conversations with the “girls” between March 6 and March 17 and was caught in the middle of the nightly sting.
Booth has been remanded in custody and will appear at Northampton Crown Court to be sentenced on May 13.
