Man ordered to pay £145 after asking for picture of young girl’s breasts

A south Devon man has been ordered to pay £145 after he asked a 13-year-old girl to send him a picture of her breasts.

Neil Martin Weeks admitted causing or inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity without reasonably believing she was over 16.

Weeks, 31, of Vineyard Terrace, East Allington was said to have requested a photograph of the 13-year-old breasts for his sexual gratification after attempting to groom her online.

Torbay Magistrates made a community order made and ordered Weeks to take part in the Thames Valley Sex Offender Programme.

He was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £60 and costs of £85.
