Pedophile faints after meeting vigilante group instead underage girl

A pedophile who thought he was meeting a 14-year-old girl he had been speaking to online collapsed when he was confronted by a vigilante group instead.

David Hanson, 45, passed out when he realised the 'girl' he had been chatting with was actually Dark Justice, who hunt child abusers.

Only a few days before their meeting last July, he had sent explicit messages to her.

Hanson, from Newcastle, pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming and was jailed for eight months.

Prosecutor Anne Richardson told Newcastle Crown Court that Hanson had contacted the fake profile of an 18-year-old girl called Amanda, set up by Dark Justice, on dating website Badoo.

On July 17 last year, Hanson messaged Amanda who then told him she had lied about her age and was 14-years-old.



The pair exchanged mobile numbers anyway and sent 750 messages between them over four days.

On July 21, they organised to meet at the Centre for Life in Newcastle before going back to Amanda's house where Hanson would stay overnight as her parents were away.

Miss Richardson said: 'They (Dark Justice) spotted the defendant and contacted the police. Both told him they were from Dark Justice, the defendant said: "I wasn't going to have sex with her".

'He said he felt sick and looked as if he was going to faint.'

Hanson was carrying a rucksack at the time, which contained his tooth brush, tooth paste and condoms.

Speaking after an earlier hearing a Dark Justice member said: 'His eyes rolled back and he just went straight to the ground. We confronted him in the same way we do all our cases, there's no aggression or anything. We just revealed who we were and he passed out.

'We prepare ourselves for all sorts of outcomes at these meetings but we certainly weren't expecting that.'
