Sick Sunderland pervert tried to persuade 11-year-old to have sex with dog during online sting

A pervert who tried to persuade an 11-year-old girl to have sex with her pet dog during a "depraved" series of online chats was snared by paedophile hunters.

Married dad Harindapan Gill, 32, claimed he was a 13-year-old lad called Harry when approached the fake schoolgirl’s profile, which was being run by Angels of Innocence, on social media site Chat Avenue on Valentine's Day 2019.

Newcastle Crown Court heard Gill, who did later revealed his true age, quickly turned the conversation sexual and bullied the child by calling her names such as "scared little girl" if she did not go along with what he said.

Prosecutor Elizabeth Muir told the court Gill made a series of graphic demands to the child's profile, which included him encouraging her to have oral sex with a stranger while he listened over the phone, commit a sex act with a hair brush and have sex with her dog.

Miss Muir said the exchange was "one of the most extreme cases of this nature that we have seen, in relation to the requests".

The court heard the adult from the London based paedophile hunter group who was behind the fake child profile, was "physically sick" as a result of some of Gill's shocking suggestions.

Gill, of Calthwaite Close, Sunderland, admitted attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activities.

Mr Recorder Keir Monteith QC sentenced him to 16 months behind bars with a sexual harm prevention order and sex offender registration for ten years.

The judge told Gill his requests to the child were "depraved and extreme" and added: "You need to remind yourself, you wanted to have sex with an 11-year-old, you wanted the 11-year-old to find a stranger to have sex with, you wanted the 11-year-old to have sex with a dog."

The judge said Gill presents a "continuing risk of harm to the public".

The court heard Gill had contacted the decoy profile within an hour of it being set up and was repeatedly told he was talking to an 11-year-old.

Miss Muir added: "He asked her if she wants an older man as her boyfriend and asks what she looks like, particularly if she has a 'big bum'.

"He then proceeds to ask for her mobile phone number and when she's reluctant he becomes unpleasant to her, asking her if she's going to be a 'mummy's girl'."

The court heard when the girl did provide Gill with a number, the conversations continued on social media and Whatsapp.

Miss Muir said Gill bragged about the dimensions of his private parts and added: "He encourages her to find a stranger to perform oral sex on, while he can listen on the phone.

"He tells her he will teach her how to have sex but she must do as he says.

"When she objects he accuses her of being a liar and a scared little girl."

The court heard Gill suggested he and the girl, who said she lived in Newcastle, could "meet at McDonalds" to have sex and offered to attend her home.

He then encouraged her to commit sex acts by herself and with her dog.

Helen Towers, defending, said Gill, who works full time, had feelings of "loneliness and stress" when he committed the offence and his family are shocked at his behaviour.

Miss Towers added: "He has not been in trouble prior to this and has not been in trouble since this.

"It is a short-lived offence to some degree, the conversation lasted a month.

"He has demonstrated remorse to the police and probation service and a good deal of victim awareness.

"He has been open and honest and looking to explore the reasons for his offending."
