Sentencing in relation to 10 ten offences including: procuring sexual services from teenage girls, counseling the making of child pornography and internet luring. 49 year old married accused, gainfully employed, with a very dated and limited record.
Held: 6.5 years jail.
Aggravating factors included: absence of mistake as to age of the victims; predatory nature of the conduct; offender’s “indifference to any potential harm” caused; the use of computer anonymity and fictitious role playing; the high degree of moral culpability.
