White Pedophile Had Viagra And Condom Stash Faked Identity To Groom Kids Online

*Hat Tip: Phillip King

Devil: Graham Rycraft

A white male who pretended to be a teenage boy in order to groom 'children' online has been jailed.

Graham Rycraft, 50, had been found guilty on May 24 following a trial for attempting to meet a child under the age of 16 following sexual grooming.

He was also guilty of attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child under the age of 16, attempting to cause a child under the age of 16 to watch a sexual act, as well as distribution and making of indecent images of children.

The pedophile, of Honour Lea Avenue, Stratford, began speaking online to what he thought was a child in September last year, but it was actually a Metropolitan Police officer using an online persona to target predatory offenders.

The sex criminal initially claimed he was a 15-year-old boy and then sent Category A images of child abuse, before admitting he was an adult and continuing to groom the ‘child’.

He arranged to meet the 'child' but was cautious of his security and went to great lengths to keep his identity hidden.

He was arrested on September 5, 2018, in a phone box having just confirmed to the 'child' where he wanted her to meet him.

An unregistered mobile phone was found in the phone box, which the child rapist denied all knowledge of.

Officers searched his workplace and found a bag containing condoms and Viagra.

The sex terrorist was charged the following day and was remanded in custody.

He was sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday (September 20) to six years' imprisonment, with a further four to be served on licence.

During sentencing the judge assessed that the child molester as a dangerous offender and a risk to children, imposing the extended licence period of four years.

Detective inspector John Halford, of Central Specialist Crime, said: "Rycraft is a calculated and callous man who sought to groom children for his own sexual gratification, taking steps to ensure his own security in the assumption that he would not be caught.

"In actual fact he had encountered officers carrying out a proactive operation aimed at bringing those who seek to exploit and abuse children to justice. He will now spend years behind bars, where he belongs.

“I am proud of the dedicated team of officers involved in this operation who have worked so hard to put a dangerous offender in prison and are continually working to safeguard and protect the children of London.”
