Paedophile banned from HMP Styal after ‘violent rape’ threat using Tinder | #tinder | #pof


A paedophile has been banned from a women’s prison after threatening to carry out a ‘violent rape’.

Jay Ferguson had put together a horrific ‘rape kit’ in 2017 and threatened to abduct and rape a child.

Then aged 18, Ferguson, who identifies as a man, was locked up for 22 months and given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO).

But just days after being released from prison in 2019, he contacted officers to inform them that he had obtained a child sex abuse video as well as a knife.

This saw Ferguson handed a 14 month sentence in 2020, which he was to serve at HMP Styal in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

But while at Styal, Ferguson wrote to prison officers saying he intended to carry out a “violent rape” using the dating app Tinder when released, the Echo reports.

Now aged 22, Ferguson, from Huyton, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court today (March 31) where his named was listed as Jay aka Jodie Ferguson.

Judge Rachel Smith asked whether Ferguson was appearing via video link from Styal prison, to which Michael Stephenson, prosecuting, said: “He’s prohibited from being at Styal, he’s at a prison in West Yorkshire, I’m told.”

Ferguson was given a further six months in prison in August 2020 after admitting to sending a letter with a threatening message.

According to the charge, that related to a letter he sent from Banstead in Surrey, to a member of Merseyside Police sex offender unit, on February 6, 2020.

Ferguson was then given a two-year restraining order, preventing him from contacting the recipient, or going to HMP Styal.

This morning he appeared from HMP New Hall, a closed category women’s prison near Wakefield.

Ferguson confirmed with Judge Smith that he wished to be referred to as Mr Ferguson, with the use of the pronouns he and him. He then pleaded guilty to two breaches of his SHPO.

The court heard how Ferguson breached the order between the dates of February 27 and March 1, 2021 when he “accessed Zoe and Only Women dating applications via Facebook…without reasonable excuse”.

The two apps are dating platforms for lesbian and bisexual women.

Ferguson also admitted breaching the order on February 28 by accessing Facebook Messenger to make contact with his niece.

Paul Lewis, defending, requested a pre-sentence report, adding there were “self-harm issues and other issues relating to accommodation and the like”.

Judge Smith adjourned sentencing until April 30 and remanded Ferguson in custody until that date.

She said: “It’s in your interest that the court should have the fullest information about you and that will happen by way of you cooperating in interview with a probation officer.”

The judge warned: “The fact I am adjourning for the preparation of a pre-sentence report is no indication of what the sentence will be. All sentencing options including immediate custody will remain open to the court.”

Ferguson’s criminal record includes assault and possessing a knife in public in 2015.

In November 2017 he admitted attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity and five counts of malicious communications. This was after he put together the kit, that contained a balaclava and gloves, and told police he was going to rape a child after abducting them.

Ferguson told police he got the idea from a “psycho” on the TV show Law & Order, and showed officers a teddy, explaining that: “I hurt the teddy so I don’t hurt kids.”

The smirking teenager had been arrested after a series of increasingly sinister and disturbing rape threats to teenagers, children and one 15-year-old victim’s mum.

Prosecutors told the court Ferguson said he was aware sexual activity with children was wrong but “just wanted to do it”, “couldn’t help” himself, had every intention of carrying out his “fantasies” at the earliest opportunity, and as soon as he was left to live on his own “would abduct and rape a child”.

Along with the kit, police recovered a letter in which Ferguson said he was planning to go out to rape someone, with a step by step numbered list of what he would do. When released from Styal jail in August 2019, Ferguson moved back to Huyton, but within five days rang police to say a man had sent him indecent images of children.

However, officers discovered he had encouraged the man to send videos, chatted about abusing children, and they sent each other videos of them performing sex acts. Ferguson, who later claimed he was acting as a ‘paedophile hunter’, was then found to have a clip of a girl aged between eight and 10 performing a sex act.

The pervert was released on bail, but just days later walked into Huyton Police Station and said he had a knife because he had been sexually assaulted. When sentenced for possessing an indecent image of a child and having an article with a blade in January 2020, concerns were raised of Ferguson’s “immediate risk”.

Sarah Badrawy, prosecuting, said: “He has written letters to officers at Styal indicating his intention to carry out a violent rape on his release and his intention to use a social network or dating application called Tinder to do so.”

Defence lawyers said Ferguson was a “complex young man” with cognitive deficits and relationship issues who needed “very careful supervision within the community”.
