British man groomed teenaged girls on Facebook for sexMay 28th, 2011 - 6:45 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 28 (IANS) A 19-year-old Briton has admitted having sex with girls as young as 13 who he groomed on Facebook, police said.Jake Ormerod, from Torquay in Devon, admitted 13 charges related to eight girls when he appeared at a local court.
Ormerod was part of a paedophile gang that used Facebook to groom schoolgirls before meeting them, plying them with drink and drugs and sexually abusing them, The Sun reported.
The group hung around schools and preyed on young, vulnerable, missing children, police said.
Detective Inspector Simon Snell - who is leading the operation investigating the abuse - said there would be more arrests in connection with the paedophile group.
“Facebook is one of the features. Ormerod had an account and we are actively investigating the links that site provides us.”
“They used Facebook and met them via the site. Slowly and surely they began to pretend that they were the boyfriends of the victims. But there is no way these girls could pretend to be the girlfriends of sex offenders,” he said.
