Pervert Calling Himself “Stoke Guy” Trapped By Police After Arranging To Meet “Hannah, 13” For Sex
A pervert named “Stoke guy” was trapped by plainclothes police posing as a 13 year old girl.
Martin Lewis uploaded videos of himself performing sex despite “Hannah” telling him she was “almost 13” and didn’t want a sex conversation.
The 25-year-old suggested playing ‘naughty doctor’ and asked if she wanted to have sex before arranging for her to visit him in Stoke.
But when he went to meet her outside the co-op in Meir he was greeted by the police who arrested him.
Now Lewis has been sentenced to a three-year community order at Crown Court of Stoke-on-Trent.
Prosecutor Richard Orme said the accused was arrested after a West Midlands Police operation to target online sex offenses against children.
The force created a fake profile of a 13-year-old girl named Hannah in 2018 using the username “Happy Hannah 13”. The accused contacted the “girl” using the username “Stoke Guy”.
Mr Orme said: “The accused asked Hannah how old she was. She replied that she was almost 13 years old.
“Very quickly the accused started talking to Hannah about adult games he would like to play and asked her if she would like to pay strip cards or a naughty doctor.
“He sent her a video of him performing a sexual act.
“He asked her if she masturbated and said he would like to see her do it.
“She even told him she had to go to school.
“He asked her if she wanted to have sex. When she replied that she had heard it hurt, he said he would be nice.
“He then asked if she wanted to sleep with him.”
The next day, he sent her a picture of himself having sex.
A few days later, he asked her to engage in sexual acts.
On May 15, Lewis asked the girl to visit him in the pottery. But the next day he got cold feet and tried to talk her out of traveling.
Mr Orme said: “He said she should lie to her mom about her age and she had to say that she was 16 and that she was a Playstation friend.
“She texted him saying she had arrived at the co-op. He approached her but was greeted by West Midlands Police and was arrested.”
The defendant made a full confession. His phone was examined and it contained eight extreme pornographic images involving sex with animals.
Lewis, of Pinewood Crescent, Meir, pleaded guilty to attempting to have sexual communication with a child; attempting to use a child to watch a sexual act; attempting to get a child to engage in sexual activity; attempting to meet a child following a sexual interview; attempt to arrange or facilitate the commission of a child sexual offense; and possession of extreme pornographic images.

Martin Bloor, mitigating, said the accused was emotionally immature. He said: “He has a lot of difficulty communicating with people normally. He used to use the Internet as a communication tool.”
As part of the community ordinance, Lewis is required to complete a 90-day sex offender program, a 25-day rehab activity requirement, and 260 hours of unpaid work.
He was the subject of a five-year Sexual Injury Prevention Order (SHPO) and was entered in the Sex Offender Registry for the same period.
Judge David Fletcher said: “She told you from the start that she didn’t want to get involved in sexual discussions and that’s exactly what you started to do.
“Over the course of a few days you made arrangements and expected her to show up to Meir near you. You were clearly panicking and pushing her away.
“The fact that she’s not a child is neither here nor there. The point is, that was your intention.
“The infractions date back to May 2019 and there has been no suggestion of any other behavior.
“There is a real prospect of reintegration. There is the possibility of doing business with professionals for three years. Unpaid work – which will have the advantage of getting you used to the world of work.
“The Sexual Injury Prevention Order (SHPO) will prevent you from having contact with young people. It will keep you away from internet activities. “
Judge Fletcher added: “You should try to find a job and go out and meet real people and avoid repetition.
“I don’t want to see you again. If I do, it will be bad news for you.
Lewis was ordered to pay £ 500 in costs.
