Teenage girls groomed online
A WOKING man who used fake social media profiles to groom teenage girls online was jailed for six years.
Jordan Towers, 26, was arrested in February after a 13-year-old girl from Kent reported he befriended her online using a fake profile and persuaded her to take indecent photographs of herself.
When the victim refused to send any more, Towers would become aggressive and threatened to distribute the images already sent to his friends and family unless they sent more.
Detective Inspector Martin Goodwin, from Surrey Police’s paedophile online investigation team, said he wanted to reinforce the dangers of the internet – and urged teenagers to be wary of who they are speaking to.
He added: “The lengths that Towers went to, to deceive and target his victims is deplorable. His offending has had a profoundly devastating impact on not only his victims’ lives, but also those of their families.”
