Man Gets 10 Months For Sexual Grooming

10th August 2018

A man has been jailed for 10 months for attempting to meet what he thought was a 13 year old girl in Jersey following sexual grooming.

33 year old Luis Daniel Da Silva Ferreira is the latest person to be snared by paedophile hunter Cheyenne O’Connor.

Ferreira started a conversation with Miss O’Connor posing as the child on Facebook in November last year.

The Magistrate’s Court heard that they arranged to meet and police found him with a bottle of baby oil. He was then arrested.

Defence Advocate Adam Harrison said he knew that prison was inevitable and that he didn’t think of the consequences of his actions.

As well as being sentenced for 10 months, he has also been given a 5 year restraining order and placed on the Sex Offenders’ register.

Ferreira was told in custody that he could be deported back to Madeira after the jail term – but Assistant Magistrate Peter Harris didn’t recommend that in sentencing.

He was one of several men snared by Miss O’Connor to appear in court this week – but the only one so far to be sentenced.
