A registered sex offender has been jailed for four years after travelling to Luton with the intention of meeting a child to sexually abuse them.
Andrew Burnside, 46, from Holly Road, Handsworth, Birmingham pleaded guilty to arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence.
He was issued with a seven-year extended sentence comprised of four years in jail and an additional three years on extended licence. He will also have to sign the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely.
Burnside, a registered sex offender following a conviction last year of making indecent images of children, for which he was given a three-year community order, had been communicating with people over the internet and made plans to travel to Luton with the intention of abusing a child and a baby.
