Newcastle Crown Court heard the group, who pose as children online to expose paedophiles, had set up a profile on a messaging site called Scout.

Oglesby made contact with the ‘girl’ – who Dark Justice named Hayley – late last year, then quickly said ‘bye’ when told it belonged to a 13-year-old.

But the court heard that within weeks, Oglesby got in touch with the ‘girl’ again and initially engaged in friendly chat, which quickly turned sexual.

Prosecutor Emma Dowling told the court: ‘He asked, “do you want some company in bed?”

‘Eleven minutes later, he sent another message asking “are you a virgin?”.’

The court heard the graphic chat developed into Oglesby sending the ‘girl’ a picture of his penis, with the caption ‘mmm, you like?’ and asking for naked pictures of the schoolgirl in exchange.

When Oglesby turned up to meet the ‘girl’, so he could ‘get a kiss’, he was confronted by Dark Justice and drove off.

The group, who have been responsible for dozens of convictions of paedophiles, tracked him to his home and handed a file of evidence about him to the police.

Oglesby, from Sunderland, admitted attempting to meet a child after grooming.

Judge Amanda Rippon sentenced him to two years behind bars with a lifelong Sexual Harm Prevention Order and ten years on the sex offenders’ register.

The judge told him: ‘You began conversations with what you understood to be a 13-year-old girl.

‘The conversations were relatively platonic for the first few weeks but that changed and you decided you would ask her whether or not she was a virgin and whether she wanted company in bed.

‘You knew it was wrong. The messages continued, you wanted to meet her, kiss her, cuddle her.

Jacqueline Coxon, defending, told the court Oglesby fails to appreciate 'sexual boundaries' but did not intentionally set out to chat to a child (pictured) when he went on the site Scout

‘You knew it was wrong, you made it plain during the messages.’

The court heard it was in August 2011 Oglesby was given a community order or having sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl and he has breached court orders relating to that conviction since.

Judge Rippon told him: ‘I am quite satisfied you pose a risk to underage girls, girls under 16.’

Jacqueline Coxon, defending, told the court Oglesby fails to appreciate ‘sexual boundaries’ but did not intentionally set out to chat to a child when he went on the site.

Miss Coxon added: ‘He is a hard working young man who has had a decent upbringing.

‘He accepts there is still work that needs to be done to prevent further offending.’
