“He said some things which terrified me.

“What this man did to me, I will never forget or forgive.”

Brandino Ciccione

A youth worker was jailed after he fell into a trap set by paedophile hunters who duped him into believing he was contacting a 10-year-old schoolgirl.

He denied the offences and was convicted by a jury after a trial of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity.

The defendant was also found guilty of attempting sexual communication with a child and jailed for five years.

Shannon Vicary

A “depraved” couple, of Church Road, Newport, were jailed for nearly 25 years after a girlfriend arranged for her paedophile lover be alone with a toddler and abuse her.

Shannon Vicary found a little girl so that her partner Michael Colmer could live out his sick fantasies and sexually assault her. 

Colmer, 46, was jailed for more than 17 years and 25-year-old Vicary was sent to prison for seven years and six months.

Judge David Wynn Morgan told Vicary: "You were plainly anxious to assist in the gratification of Colmer's sexual desires.

"You were encouraging each other.

"This case reveals behaviour by both you of an almost unimaginable level of depravity.”

South Wales Argus:

Peter Croasdale

Ex-BBC producer Peter Croasdale tried to con a private school’s headteacher into allowing him to film schoolgirls at a Christmas concert.

The serial sex offender attempted to “hoodwink” Monmouth’s Haberdashers’ to allow him to record a carol service.

The 58-year-old gave the school a bogus name and tried to charge the then head £450 to film a performance.

Croasdale was jailed for more than four years in 2009 for sexually abusing a young girl, taking an indecent photograph of a child, voyeurism and possessing indecent photographs of children.

When Gwent Police arrested the ex-Radio 4 producer for committing his recent crimes in Monmouthshire they caught him with disturbing child abuse images on his computer.

He was locked up for four years.
