Quick Exit

Naomi's story

This is a story from somewhere in the UK. Names and other details have been changed to protect identities.

I was good at sport at school. And my family was what you would call ‘normal’.

I met Nick on the internet and thought he was in his mid-twenties. We got on really well and agreed to meet up. As soon as I saw him, I knew something was wrong – he looked about fifty!

I’d invited him to my house when my parents were out and it was clear he was expecting sex or something.

“I felt like I’d led him on and didn’t know how to say no, so I agreed to have sex with him.”

I immediately regretted it and told him I didn’t want to see or speak to him any more. But he wouldn’t leave me alone and kept trying to get in touch. I didn’t know what to do so I told a family friend and the police got involved.

The police identified the man as a local business man. When they seized his computer they discovered that he had been chatting to other under-age young people, telling them he liked ‘young girls’. He frequently tried to meet up with the people he chatted with, for the explicit purposes of having sex with them, even though he knew they were not yet 16.
