Convicted sex offender used fake name on swingers site and started relationship with mum of three-year-old


A swinger used a fake name to hide the fact that he was a convicted sex offender before starting a relationship with the mum of a three-year-old.

Glenn Michael Roberts didn’t tell police he was using an alias, that he’d moved house or that a child under 18 was in his company.

The 32-year-old was jailed for downloading extreme indecent images of children last year, and released in October.

He was placed on the sex offenders’ register and a Sexual Harm Prevention Order was made – both for 10 years.

The terms Roberts, of Kinmel Avenue, Llandudno, breached were set out as strict conditions as part of the order.

This time round, he pleaded guilty to three breaches of the Sex Offenders’ Act at Llandudno Magistrates Court .

His solicitor argued Roberts was like most swingers who would use false names online and he only wanted to meet a woman.

However, magistrates at Llandudno ruled the case was so serious it must be dealt with at the crown court.

Graham Parry, defending, said that anxious to form a new relationship Roberts had logged on to an internet swingers’ club using the name Ben Kelly.

He said: “Few people would use their own names.”

On a messaging site called Kick he’d used the profile Ches Roberts.

Mr Parry said the woman whom he befriended “certainly knew he had a different name.”

He said: “They engaged in conversation and eventually met for coffee before the relationship developed.”

The court heard Roberts was introduced to the child at the woman’s sister’s, according to the Daily Post.

When she discovered his name was Glenn Roberts she Googled it and his true identity was revealed.

Mr Parry said: “In fairness, he’s set out to try and have a relationship with some females and has done so using a dating website and false name.

“Where he makes the mistake is not telling the police.

“There’s no suggestion anyone has been photographed or anything inappropriate done.”

But Sarah Marsh, prosecuting, said: “It’s not a transient or trifling breach.”

Roberts will appear for sentence at Caernarfon Crown Court on August 11.
