A pervert who befriended young schoolgirls over the Internet by pretending to be a teen himself has been locked up for six years.
Liam Dorr, 29, groomed them and entered into intimate relationships with them – flattering and complimenting them to such an extent that they agreed to send photographs of themselves to him, some in sexual poses.
Mold Crown Court heard Dorr used false names and details and persuaded a schoolgirl to speak to him over a webcam – but said his camera was not working so she could not see him.
He secretly recorded her indulging in a sex act – and later posted a video and photograph of her on a salacious web site.
Police were able to track him down through an old mobile phone number and when they examined his computer equipment at his home at Plas Edwards, Tywyn near Aberystwyth in Mid Wales they found found that he had been chatting and filming other girls as well over a number of years.
Officers discovered images of up to 100 different girls on his computers and he was found to have more than 300 movies.
