Summary below:

'YORK A judge allowed a paedophile to walk free today (Mon) after his 13-year-old victim was described as a 'sexual predator' in court. Judge Nigel Peters told Neil Wilson, 41, he had also taken account the fact the child looked older. Prosecutor Robert Colover, told the judge: 'The girl is predatory in all her actions and she is sexually experienced.' Wilson lured the teenager to his home in Romford, Essex, where he watched her strip out of her school uniform before she performed a sex act on him. The abuse did not come to light until the girl confided in a friend who then told police. During a search of Wilson's home officers also uncovered a stash of vile images and videos depicting child abuse and bestiality. He pleaded guilty to two counts of making extreme pornographic images and one count of sexual activity with a child and was handed a suspended sentence at Snaresbrook Crown Court. Judge Peters told him: 'You have come as close to prison as is imaginable. 'I have taken in to account that even though the girl was 13, the prosecution say she looked and behaved a little bit older. 'You knew she was not nearly 16 as she said and your plea of guilty recognises that you knew. 'Allowing her to visit your home is something we have to clamp down on and in normal circumstances that would mean a significant term in prison. 'On these facts, the girl was predatory and was egging you on. 'That is no defence when dealing with children but I am prepared to impose a suspension.' - See more at:

I'm not starting this thread for debate. I was sent details about this due to a petition and I wanted to let people know about it so if they also feel strongly about it they can sign.

Petition is called 'It's never the child's fault'

The child was predatory? Wtf?!

So to summarise the guy:

Lured a child to his house with intent to abuse
Encouraged a child to get naked in front of him
Sexually assaulted the child
Had illegal pornography, including child porn
Knew said child was a child but had a skeevey prosecutor who blamed her for looking older than she is despite the offender knowing she wasn't 16

I still don't get how she is a predator for saying she's nearly nearly not yet there 16

The judge is a fucking idiot.
