Gloucester man jailed

A Gloucester man, who posed as a teenager to lure children in chat rooms, has been jailed for three years.

21-year-old Dominic Skillern, of Batch Corner, Slaney Street, Gloucester, pleaded guilty to six offences of inciting children to perform sexual acts and twelve counts of possessing indecent images of children.

He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life and was given a sexual offences prevention order, which bans Skillern from contact with children and using social networking sites.

DC Jon Youdan, officer-in-charge of the case, said:

"I would like to thank the victims and their familes for their support and the faith they put in the constabulary to achieve justice for them.

“This case demonstrates that persons who abuse or attempt to abuse children using the internet will be pursued and brought before the courts to face the consequences of their actions.

“Our schools unit cover the area of offenders taking on aliases to lure children, as happened in this case, at the talks they give across the county, and we are determined to continue to warn parents and pupils of the potential dangers of the internet.”
