Bolton Had Only Just Been Released From Prison!
A relentless paedophile went looking for his next victims within weeks of being released from prison for previous child sex offences, a court has heard.
Robert Ian Bolton secretly bought a smartphone, something he was banned from doing - and began searching for youngsters.
The dad of six found what he thought was a 13 year old girl and bombarded her with hundreds of disgusting sexual messages before arranging to meet at Swansea train station for sex in a B&B.
In fact he had been conversing with members of a paedophile hunting groups named 'Defending The Innocent' and 'UKJustice'.
The judge at Swansea Crown Court told Bolton that "he posed serious risk to children" and imposed an extended six year sentence on him.
The court heard how the pair began conversing and Bolton sent hundreds of sexual messages as well as sending hundreds of graphic pictures and an audio file of him performing a sex act on himself.
He also stated how he wanted the child to run away so that they could be together, the other more alarming quotes were "Tell me you love me", and how he asked her to send him a valentines day card with "Boyfriend" on it.
Bolton, of the Strand, Swansea, admitted breaching a sexual harm prevention order, attempting to meet a girl following sexual grooming, attempting to communicate with a girl under 16 years of age.
The court heard he had 28 previous convictions for 49 offences - mainly for violence, public order offences and dishonesty matters. His last offence was a sexual offence in Merthyr in 2018.
What's the most shocking about this case is that within weeks of being released from prison he was actively pursuing children for sex, even going to a meet point at a train station where BOLTON had one ambition in mind and that was to engage in sexual intercourse with a minor if a real child had of turned up at the station thus proving that no rehabilitation is possible for an offender as relentless as Bolton.
BOLTON was sentenced to:
. 3 years custodial imprisonment with an extended license period of 3 years
. He must sign the sex offenders register for the rest of his life
. Placed on an indefinite sexual harm prevention order
