Shane Shaw

Shane Shaw of Greenhead Avenue, Dalton, Huddersfield contacted what he thought was a 15-year-old boy on a gay dating app on Christmas Eve last year.

The 29-year-old invited the boy - who was in fact an adult - to his mothers home “for a cuddle” and went on to suggest they engage in sexual activity.

A week later he was confronted by members of a paedophile hunter group who called the police and he was arrested.

Shaw was given an eight month sentence suspended for two years, 100 hours of unpaid work and order to sign the sex offenders register.

He’s also been banned from working with children.
