The fake Holly profile was a setup by the group, and Jones was caught. Newcastle Crown Court heard how Jones had groomed the fake girl online after seeing the profile on the “Fast Flirting” app.
Jones has been sentenced to 16 months in prison, suspended for two years and will be on the sex offenders register. He will also enter alcohol rehabilitation.
