A CONVICTED sex offender who worked as a webcam model is back behind bars after admitting further offences against a teenage girl.

Connor Hayes, 25, of no fixed abode, was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court after pleading guilty to two counts of causing or inciting a child aged 13 to 15 to engage in sexual activity and causing a child aged to watch a sexual act. He was sentenced to 21 months in prison.

He was also told he would be placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years and the previous Sexual Harm Prevention Order he was already subject to was to be extended to 2028 and amended to exclude him contacting girls under 16.

In December 2016 Hayes was jailed for two years after admitting to taking an indecent moving image of a child, possession of indecent images of a child and paying for the sexual services of a child. He befriended his victim in 2014 when the girl was aged over 16.

Although she was over the age of consent she was aged under 18, making it illegal to make or possess indecent images of her. He and a second man got the girl to take part in a sex video claiming it was just for him, but subsequently uploaded it to the internet.

It was during the course of this investigation that the offences relating to the most recent convictions were discovered.

At the time of the offences Hayes was working as a webcam model, selling videos and live footage of himself engaging in sexual acts, said a police spokesman.

"On Wednesday October 14 2015, Hayes’s computer was seized and examined. Messages were discovered between Hayes and the victim," said the spokesman. "They were sexual in nature and alluded to the victim being aged 15. Hayes spoke about loving the girl and getting a hotel. He also suggested that they could engage in sex for money when she was 16 or 17."

On September 6 2015 Hayes sent a link to the victim directing her to a pornographic website and between August 2015 and October that year there were 53 Skype video calls between them.

The victim told officers Hayes first contacted her in 2014 when she was 14 years old via Facebook, and then over Skype. During the Skype videos Hayes asked her to undress and perform sexual acts and exposed himself to her.

He was arrested in June 2016 and subsequently charged.

Detective Constable Mandy Brimicombe, of the Integrated Missing Persons & Child Sexual Exploitation Team (IMPACT), said: “Connor Hayes targets vulnerable teenage girls for his own sexual gratification. He knew full well that his victim on this occasion was under age and that it was a serious criminal offence."
