Wisbech paedophile tried to lure “children”

A paedophile who tried to lure two people he believed were children into sexual activity has been jailed.

Alfred Dempster, 57, began talking to an “11-year-old girl”, who was actually a member of an online child activist group, on KIK Messenger before moving onto Whatsapp on New Year’s Day 2020.

He asked them to send an explicit photo, touch themselves and ask to be called “Daddy”.

The contact ended on 9 January 2020.

In November of that year, Dempster also began speaking to another decoy, this time one pretending to be a 14-year-old girl.

Again on KIK and Whatsapp, Dempster asked for photos, said he wanted to have sex and also encouraged them to touch themselves.

Dempster was arrested at his home in Nene Quay, Wisbech, on 11 January 2021, and his electronic devices seized.

On Friday (2 February), at Peterborough Crown Court, Dempster was jailed for two years and six months, having pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to cause/incite a girl aged 13 to 15 to engage in sexual activity.

Two counts of attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child, which Dempster denied, were ordered to lie on file.

DC Zip Lloyd said: “This was a disgusting case where Dempster showed intent to potentially sexually assault two children.”
