(Scroll down for video) A man was seen crying in his mugshot after he was busted for grooming young girls while using fake social media profiles.
26-year-old Jordan Towers of the United Kingdom, targeted teenagers between 13 and 16 years old from across the country, according to Surrey police.
Towers pleaded guilty to 21 counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child, and taking and distributing indecent photographs of a child.
A Guildford Crown Court ordered Towers to register as a sex offender for life and he was sentenced to six years in prison.
Towers was caught with a 13-year-old Kent girl who reported that he had befriended her online using a fake profile and persuaded her to take indecent photographs of herself.
When officers searched his cell phone, they found more than 1,000 vile photographs of children.
Detectives identified about 60 victims by matching their phone numbers with chat logs.
Towers targeted vulnerable girls, police said. He befriended them through Instagram or a teen dating app called Yellow.
The Guildford Crown Court heard how Towers showered the girls with compliments until he gained their confidence. He then asked them to send him photos or participate in video chats that were sexual in nature.
Many girls sent him graphic photos, but when he demanded more, they refused. That is when he became aggressive. He threatened to send the nude photos that he already had from them to their friends and family unless they sent more.
Towers also sent the nude photos to other victims and demanded they send him similar poses.
