A man of the United Kingdom was jailed after he convinced boys to perform sex acts for him.

Gamer 24-year-old Robert Mulhern of Swindon contacted a 13-year-old boy from Lancashire during online gaming sessions.

He lured the boy and his brother to speak with him and to carry out sex acts.

Mulhern then bought the 11-year-old an iPad and directed him how to download Skype on the device so that he can watch the boy carry out sex acts on himself while he watched.

Mulhern also ordered the 13-year-old boy to spank his brother on his naked behind while he watched online.

Mulhern eventually connected with another 13-year-old who was a friend of the victim.

The Swindon Crown Court heard that Mulhern was just a few months into a suspended sentence for similar offenses when he contacted the brothers via XBox gaming.

Judge Robert Pawson said that Mulhern is a danger to children because he has repeatedly used online gaming platforms to groom young boys.

Mulhern pleaded guilty to 4 counts of sexual offences against a child under 16, two counts of sexual communications with a child, and five counts of breaching a previous sexual harm prevention order.

He was sentenced to 7 years in prison and he was ordered he register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
