Teesside Crown Court

Teesside Crown Court

A PREDATORY paedophile who blackmailed vulnerable schoolgirls into performing degrading sex acts on webcams has been jailed for nine years today.

Peter Jeffery, 29, from Hartlepool, encouraged four teenage girls who lived hundreds of miles away to strip and engage in sexual activity after contacting them using Skype and other social media.

He created different internet identities for himself in order to manipulate his victims to do what he wanted, Teesside Crown Court heard.

Jeffery, of Ellison Street, Hartlepool, admitted 13 counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, two charges of making indecent images of children and one of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

Judge Howard Crowson said: “You are in my view a manipulative paedophile.”
