15th June 2018 - Not just a sting but an uncovering of many more serious offences...
Who remembers our sting last June with Nick Abbot, Torquay? A new twisted dark side has been revealed by the police...
In June 2018, JFTI successfully stung Nick Abbot, at the time, with clear evidence of grooming a 14 year old decoy online. On the 20th of July 2018 the Torquay predator plead guilty to grooming what he thought was a child online.
The most shocking part of the sting was when I asked how old he thought the decoy was, he said "14", whilst confessing to another crime he committed in regards to framing someone.
However, since then, the Police have managed to uncover many other serious offences against Nick Abbot. He has been found in possession of Category A indecent images, 25 in total, as well as 9 other related offences!! For those of you who may not know, Category A material is the worst kind including child rape.
Posession of Indecent Images (Category A)
It's rare I'm left speechless but I'd like to take this opportunity to reinforce why JFTI and other hard working dedicated teams are so important for the safeguarding of children and their families. Having originally stung Nick for his grooming offences against our decoy, this procedure allowed the police to investigate him further, which without our original sting, the police would not have been aware of or allowed to investigate. We must all be aware that our forces have their own red tape and procedures/rules. These limit their knowledge and ability to do anything without real concrete evidence. For those who feel that stings should be left to the police, I emphasise here that it is the arrest at the sting scene along with unquestionable evidence and admission that allows the police to work around their strict rules, opening avenues to seize devices and investigate the predators further. It is the arrest that makes this possible! Not only this, but the arrest allows the case to move to court immediately once investigations are complete.
CASE UPDATES: ***PLEA HEARING: GUILTY***
Name: Nickolas Abbott
Sentencing will commence: 9th of November and hopefully this should be the final conclusion. He's currently on conditional bail residing in the Chelston area of Torquay, can all parents please remain vigilant.
