Two women were arrested, charged and convicted of sex crimes against children after writing about sleeping with young boys on social media sites, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
The two women and a man of Barrow, have been found guilty following a trial at the Preston Crown Court.
Kevin Barnett and Nikita Moore were convicted of conspiracy to commit child sexual offenses. Susan Barnett was convicted of arranging or facilitating the commission of child sexual offenses.
According to the police investigation, the three defendants sent texts and social media messages to one another, planning sexual offenses against two children.
Susan Barnett, Kevin Barnett, and Nikita Moore, previously pleaded guilty to possession of extreme images, while Nikita Moore previously pleaded guilty to taking and distribution of indecent images.
Kevin Barnett previously pleaded guilty to making indecent images of children.
“Susan Barnett, Kevin Barnett, and Nikita Moore, have been found guilty of extremely alarming offenses whereby they planned among themselves the sexual abuse of vulnerable young children. They sent shockingly explicit messages to one another, including photographs of the children they planned to abuse over a prolonged period of ten days. The messages shown during the trial proved that the abuse was intended to be made real and would have been put into action once the opportunity arose,” Charles Brown, Senior Crown Advocate for CPS North West, said.
“All three defendants denied they intended to carry out the abuse they had discussed and attempted to explain it away as general talk about sexual fantasies. However, after carefully considering all the evidence against them, the jury has found them guilty of all the repugnant offenses they committed,” Brown added.
