The 55-year-old was captured by so-called pedophile hunters who communicate online with someone he believed was a school girl

A court heard that a pedophile dated to meet a 14-year-old girl for sex after grooming her online

Elvis Aron Presley Jr had spent the past fourteen days sending the girl a series of explicit messages encouraging her to engage in sexual acts on herself and to send him a pair of her used and unwashed panties

When the convicted sex offender appeared at the arranged meeting, he was arrested by members of a so-called pedophile hunter group

Swansea Crown Court heard that a “decoy” account supposedly that of a 14-year-old girl contacted Presley on Instagram in December 2019

Jim Davis, the prosecutor, said the bait first asked the defendant if he was really Elvis Presley Jr was what the defendant replied to. In the days that followed, Bait and the 55-year-old defendant had a series of conversations that soon became sexual in nature

The court heard that, despite the bait that told Presley several times that she was 14, the defendant spoke to her about sex toys, encouraged her to engage in sexual acts on herself, and around a pair of her used and unwashed bat panties

Mr Davis said Presley would leave on Jan. December spoke to the girl about going to his apartment in Carmarthen and that arrangements were being made to meet later that week. When he showed up at the town’s meeting point, he was met and arrested by members of the pedophile hunter group p>

The police were called and a search of the defendant’s nearby home revealed that he had “sex objects” in his bedroom, including vibrators and Velcro handcuffs

Presley of Nott Square in Carmarthen admitted attempting to sexually communicate with a child, inciting sexual activity in a child, and after having sexually cared for a child, the offenses are charged as “experimental” offenses, since no actual child was involved

The court heard that in 2007 he was convicted by the Southampton Magistrates’ Court of indecent or abusive messages and convictions of four indecent assaults on a girl under the age of 14 by Norwich Crown Court in 2011 – those offenses related to sexual assault which he committed on a young girl in the 1980s. At the time of the Carmarthen crimes, he was on the sex offender registry following the Norwich conviction

Helen Randall, for Presley, said there was little remedy available to the crimes themselves. She said the defendant had “complex mental health problems” and was remorseful for his actions

Judge Paul Thomas QC said it was clear that Presley believed he was communicating with a real 14-year-old girl when he was dating and “making preparations for sex” with her

The judge gave the defendant a quarter discount on his guilty confessions and sentenced him to a total of 27 months in prison. Presley will serve up to half that sentence before being released under license. The defendant was the subject of a 10-year sexual harm prevention order and will be a registered sex offender for the same time
