Boys stripping on webcam why choose internet dating services
The BBC quoted Justice Bowers: Hunter pleaded guilty at Teesside Crown Court to 15 charges of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and 14 of making indecent photos.
What can be done to protect children from predators like Hunter? In December 2012, 48 countries joined forces to launch the most expansive fight ever against the spread of online child sex abuse.
Posing as Bieber, he convinced girls that he wanted to be their boyfriend.
Hunter also posed as a teenage girl in order to convince schoolboys to perform sex acts on camera.
Before he was caught, one victim, a 12-year-old girl, slashed her arms after Hunter posted indecent photos of her on Facebook, along with her address and phone number, the BBC reports.
The judge, Peter Bowers, called it possibly the worst case of internet child sex abuse he had heard.
He then used those images to lure more girls, the prosecutor said.
Hunter blackmailed some victims into agreeing to his demands by threatening to make the videos he had already made of them public.
