Paedophile spared jail for abusing girl, 13, is caught again with sick messages

A man who was previously spared jail for sexual activity with a child has been caught trying to meet another underage child.

Richard Oglesby, 26, was caught out by paedophile hunters Dark Justice in a sting after they posed as a girl called Hayley.

He made contact with the profile but said ‘bye’ when he was told the account belonged to a 13-year-old.

However he got in touch with the profile again and the messages turned sexual asking the girl ‘do you want some company in bed. and ‘are you a virgin.’

He sent a picture of his penis and asked ‘mmm, you like?’.

He then turned up to meet the girl to ‘get a kiss’ but was greeted by Dark Justice so he drove off.

Newcastle Crown Court heard that Oglesby first appeared in court in 2011 after he met a girl on Facebook who he sexually abused.

As a result of his latest case he was jailed for two years and told to sign the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.

Judge Amanda Rippon told him: ‘You began conversations with what you understood to be a 13-year-old girl.

‘The conversations were relatively platonic for the first few weeks but that changed and you decided you would ask her whether or not she was a virgin and whether she wanted company in bed.

‘You knew it was wrong.The messages continued, you wanted to meet her, kiss her, cuddle her. You knew it was wrong, you made it plain during the messages.’


The court heard it was in August 2011 Oglesby was given a community order for having sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl and he has breached court orders relating to that conviction since.

Judge Rippon told him: ‘I am quite satisfied you pose a risk to underage girls, girls under 16.’

Jacqueline Coxon, defending, told the court Oglesby fails to appreciate ‘sexual boundaries’ but did not intentionally set out to chat to a child when he went on the site.

Miss Coxon added: ‘He is a hard working young man who has had a decent upbringing. He accepts there is still work that need to be done to prevent further offending.’
