Swindon man encouraged ’14-year-old girl’ to engage in sexual activity

A pervert has admitted a child sexual offence following a paedophile hunter sting.

Appearing before Swindon Magistrates’ Court, Swindon man Jason Slip, 29, admitted inciting a child to engage in non-penetrative sexual activity.

The charge, and subsequent conviction, follows his communication with a 14-year-old girl online, who turned out to be a decoy profile set up by paedophile hunters.

Slip, of Brean Road, Redhouse, was bailed to attend court on 31 March for sentencing.

He was ordered to attend Gablecross Police Station to register as a sex offender – the term will be imposed during sentencing.
