Childhood cancer survivor accused of attempting to groom 15-year-old girl for sex: reports
A childhood cancer survivor was confronted on camera by vigilante pedophile hunters who accused him of attempting to prepare a 15-year-old virgin for sex.
Corey Deans, 22, who battled a brain tumor as young as seven, has been accused of attempting to meet teenage “Katie” for underage sex, reports The Sun.
The conversations were said to have taken place on the adult chat site Badoo.
The Deans fell ill in 2001 with a brain tumor that required him to undergo 11 operations over a four-year period, the Daily Mail reported.
He became well known in the region and in 2007 met football star Peter Beardsley, who played for Newcastle United and England in an attempt to encourage the public to donate blood.
Images of when the Guardians of the North, a UK group who masquerade as children in chat rooms to identify people they claim to be pedophiles, confront Deans have surfaced online.
The vigilante group wrote on its Facebook page: “It is 22 year old Corey Deans who was sentenced today after speaking to one of our 15 year old decoys asking him to meet for sexual activities ”.
The group says their motivation is to protect children from sexual predators.
Members of the group called the police when the Deans arrived to meet “Katie” at the South Hylton tube station in Sunderland, The Sun reported.
In the video posted to social media, the Deans can be seen repeatedly denying that he is meeting the girl for sex.
“No, but I’m not that kind of guy,” one can see one dean categorically saying of the vision.
However, later in the vision, Deans, who is a technician from South Shields, apologizes, saying, “Honestly, I’m really, really sorry mate.”
He then asks: “What will happen?”
“I just say stupid things all the time,” Deans concludes.
The judge said it was not clear whether the crime could be the result of his brain cancer.
However, those who know him say that his behavior is totally out of character.
Prosecutor Michael Bunch told the court that the deans contacted the “fake profile” shortly after it was created, The Sun reported.
Mr Bunch also reportedly said he engaged in a “flirty” conversation, which ultimately turned sexual.
“As the conversations progressed they continued to have sexual overtones, mostly containing clear sexual requests and topics, each time raised by the accused asking to have sex, asking what would happen if the two met, ”Mr. Bunch said. the tribunal.
“Eventually, an agreement was made whereby the two would meet to have contact.”
According to The Sun Deans, he was ordered to sign the sex offender registry and comply with a sexual harm prevention order for seven years.
He was sentenced to a six-month suspended prison sentence for two years.
