Man jailed after pleading guilty to child sex offence
Main article content
A man has been sentenced to two years and two months in prison after pleading guilty to arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence in Dorking last year.
Emrah Acar, 27, was arrested on 17 December 2020 after arranging to meet a 14-year-old through Grindr. Acar sent an explicit image of himself to the child and engaged in highly sexualised conversation before making arrangements to meet.
Unbeknown to Acar, he was actually communicating with an undercover officer. He was subsequently intercepted and arrested in Dorking.
Acar was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court yesterday (5 July).
PC Rob Fletcher from Surrey Police’s Paedophile Online Investigation Team , who investigated the case, said: “Thankfully, during this investigation, there was never a real life victim and no children were ever in any danger. This is a really good example of the way we can work to identify potential offenders and ensure they are brought to justice.”
