A Rhyl man sent a photo of his manhood over the internet to who he thought was a girl aged 13.
He asked for “a dirty photograph” of her, engaged in highly sexualised conversations with her and told her in graphic detail what he wanted to do to her.
But it turned out that he was communicating online with an under-cover police officer, Mold Crown Court was told today.
Joshua Paul Vacher admitted at an earlier hearing that between January 22 and February 5 last year, he attempted to communicate with a child for the purpose of obtaining sexual gratification.
The 26 year-old of Brighton Road in Rhyl , also admitted that he attempted to get a child to look at images of a person engaging in a sexual act, and attempting to incite a child to record indecent images of herself.
Prosecuting barrister Matthew Curtis said that the offending began Vacher contacted who he thought was a schoolgirl aged 13 via the Kik messaging service.
When asked for a photograph he was sent one of a girl in school uniform and he told her she was cute. He said he had something to show her and sent her a photograph of his manhood, and asked her for dirty pictures of herself.
Vacher also sent messages discussing meeting up in Rhyl or Wrexham .
Told she had no sexual experience, he said “I could be your first if you want.”
He expressed his love for her and sent lots of kisses.
Inquiries identified the defendant, the information was passed on to North Wales Police and a search warrant was executed.
He had used a false name on the Kik profile but his correct photograph.
Initially, he denied any knowledge of the profile and said the messages had been sent at a time when he had lost his mobile phone.
Passing a verdict, Judge Rhys Rowlands said that he took into account the defendant’s learning difficulties.
However, he said that Vacher believed he was speaking to a 13-year-old child and engaged in “quite worrying” sexual messaging with her and subsequently jailed him for 22 weeks.
Vacher must also register with the police as a sex offender and was made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order.
