MAN Arrested After Sting By Paedophile Hunters
A GREENOCK man was arrested after being targeted by paedophile hunter group Justice For The Innocent.
The 35-year-old man has been charged in connection with alleged indecent online communication and is expected to appear at Greenock Sheriff Court today (Monday)
Stuart Steele was found to be grooming what he thought was a child; he engaged in a very graphic chat for weeks before finally being stung despite the authorities being notified of immediate action needed, and an evidence pack being refused by the Police yet the same evidence pack has now lead to Stuart being charged and we've no doubt soon to be convicted.
Stuart finally gave himself in after a lengthy phone call where he admitted his guilt, and that he knew he had a problem which he wanted to address. A LIVE sting was called off due to too many risk factors for everyone involved in the entire operation that lasted the day. Huge credit to Justice For The Innocent Scottish Division, and JFTI in the South of England in combining forces which has yield a charge, and a likely conviction.
**The Scottish Division opted to act after a handover was given to the Police a couple of weeks prior to the sting which was rejected. The predator was still talking to our decoy, which potentially could've involved real children therefore a sting was neccessary due to a high risk factor**
THE BIG QUESTION:
A Police Scotland spokesperson, said: “If you think someone may be abusing children, please contact the police rather than taking the law into your own hands. Police Scotland is fully committed to the investigation of child abuse using all of its resources, nationally and locally, to protect Scotland's children. If you are concerned that children may be at risk or suspect someone may be abusing children then please call 999, if you think there is immediate threat, or 101.
IN THAT CASE:
. WHY WAS NOTHING DONE OVER THE TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE STING IN WHICH THE POLICE WERE AWARE?
. WHY WAS THE EVIDENCE PACK REJECTED SEEING AS IT'S JUST LEAD TO A CHARGE?
As always, thank you for your continued support!

A Twist Nobody Anticipated
After an admittance of guilt in a telephone call, and confirmation of his behaviour, most of us expected a guilty plea and a date for sentencing... we were wrong! Stuart Steele has plead not guilty with his solicitor present in court to which he was placed on bail with conditions.
We'll see you in court Stuart!
