Pervert feared being caught but still met woman to have sex with her 6-year-old


A pervert feared he was being ‘set up’ when he engaged in a discussion with a mother to have sex with her 6-year-old daughter 

Youth Homelessness Education Worker Carlton Loo told her he was worried it was part of a police operation and that he would be arrested.

But despite his misgivings, the 47-year-old, who previously worked as a Senior Mental Health Recovery Worker  still arranged a meeting and he was promptly arrested.

Now Loo, of Whitehall Road, Ramsgate has been jailed for five years after admitting three offences of arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sexual offence.

Maidstone Crown Court heard that he made contact in January with a woman on the internet not realizing she was in fact an undercover police officer.

Texts and messages were exchanged in which Loo told her: “All I want to do is meet someone with a family like you”

“Hope you are not a scam. I would like to visit. Just don’t want to get either of us in trouble”

“I would like to have a regular thing. Would you like to join in?”

“You sound very cute and petite”

Loo stated what he wanted to do with the young girl, but said she would probably be too young for full sexual intercourse”

He arranged a meeting at the Waitrose coffee shop in Crowborough, East Sussex on February 5th. 

He said he had brought gifts for the children and was very excited.

He continued:” If nothing happened this week-end then he would like to meet again in the future”

His car was searched by police and they found a young girls black dress and sweets.

The court was told that Liverpool born Loo has previous convictions for violence.

A sexual harm prevention order was made and Loo’s name will be added to the sex offenders register


Loo participated is ‘couch-surfing’ in the Kent area for a number of years.
