A MAN has been jailed for three years for having sex with a girl of 14 he met on Facebook.

Ryan Fleming, 26, was labelled “boastful and arrogant” by the sentencing judge at Bradford Crown Court yesterday.

He was convicted by a jury after a week long trial of two offences of sexual activity with a child in 2013, and cleared of a further similar charge.

Fleming, of Featherbank Terrace, Horsforth, befriended the girl on Facebook.

They shared an interest in gigs and concerts and he told her he was 18, when he was in reality 22, prosecutor Sophie Drake said.

Fleming had sex with the girl twice at her home before she “dumped” him when she discovered his true age.

Fleming was on licence at the time after serving a 22-month jail sentence for falsely imprisoning a youth and sexually abusing him.

The court heard he and two other young men stripped their victim and shaved his head before Fleming walked him home, punching and kicking him on the way.

After the jury’s majority verdicts, Fleming’s solicitor advocate, Ray Singh, said the sexual activity was consensual and his client had been cleared of one of the offences.

Mr Singh accepted that an immediate prison sentence was inevitable. He said Fleming’s previous conviction arose out of a prank that went too far.

Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC made a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for ten years banning Fleming from having any future contact with his victim, or any unsupervised contact with children under 16. He accepted that Fleming and the girl became Facebook friends because of their shared interest in music. She was “articulate, intelligent and mature.” But Fleming lied about his age and he knew the girl was 14 because her mother told him.

Judge Durham Hall said Fleming had fought the case very determindly. A guilty plea would have shown some degree of remorse.

He described his previous conviction as “troubling.”

Sean Creighton, 45, of Enfield admitted to several offences, including one count of possessing a terrorist manual.

A white supremacist who idolised Adolf Hitler has been jailed after pleading guilty to hate crime offences.

Sean Creighton, 45, of Enfield, north London, admitted to posting racist, Islamophobic, homophobic and anti-Semitic material on social media.

Creighton, told police that he was “a bit of a hater who hated for the people”, Kingston Crown Court heard.

He was sentenced to five years in jail for several offences, including possessing a terrorist manual.

Prosecutor Jonathan Sandiford told the court: “The defendant was a committed racist, a member of the National Front.

“He was enthralled by Nazism and Adolf Hitler whom he told police in his interviews was his God.”

Creighton possessed an electronic document entitled “White Resistance Manual 2.4” which is said to contain details of improvised weapons and explosives.

Mr Sandiford described it as a “complete guide on how to prepare for and conduct a terrorist campaign”.

Creighton pleaded guilty to eight offences, including a charge of collecting information which could be useful to someone committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

He also pleaded guilty to six counts of publishing or distributing materials that were likely to stir up racial hatred and a further count of possession of racially inflammatory materials.

In one post Creighton called on his followers to “kill the Muslims” alongside an image of Hitler.

Head of the Crown Prosecution Service’s counter terrorism division, Sue Hemming, said: “Sean Creighton’s crimes are indicative of a man who thought that his online anonymity meant that he could get away with stirring up hatred of all kinds.”

A right-wing extremist has been jailed for five years following an investigation by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

Sean Creighton, 45, of Enfield, was accused of a terrorism offence as well as writing homophobic and racist posts for social media with the intention of stirring up hatred.

creighton-2

He was sentenced on Thursday, 23 February to four years’ imprisonment for the public order offences and five years’ imprisonment for the terrorism offence, to run concurrently.

The investigation was launched into Creighton’s activities when officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command became aware of a picture on social media of a man, they later identified as Creighton, holding an assault rifle standing in front of a Nazi flag.

On 29 June 2016 a Section 46 Firearms Act warrant was executed at his address in north London.

He was arrested under Section 19 Public Order Act 1986 – distributing written material intending to stir up racial hatred in relation to material on his social media account. When officers further investigated his activity they discovered he was using various methods to spread hate, including offensive stickers on street furniture and what can only be described as prolific activity on social media. They also discovered he had possession of a manual of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

On 31 August 2016 he was charged with a terrorism offence and public order offences and appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court the following morning where he was remanded in custody to await trial.

Commander Dean Haydon, of the Counter Terrorism Command, said: “We are as committed to apprehending and prosecuting far right extremists who commit terrorist offences and promote hatred as we are those who support and promote ISIS. Both are intent on destroying communities and pose a real risk if they are allowed to continue.”
