Michael Bickerton, 49, insisted that his interest in sexual relations with children was purely fantasy. That did not sit well with English police who arrested Bickerton after he drove 130 miles to meet at 10-year-old for sex. It also did not help that he brought a cheerleading outfit with him in the car.
Police had been tracking the online comments of Bickerton who said that he liked “children from the age of eight years”.
He then drove from his home in Stoke-on-Trent to Cambridgeshire where he was arrested. Judge Sean Enright gave Bickerton an eight year sentence and also placed him on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely with an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO).
