A father has been jailed after offering who he thought was a 14-year-old girl $1,000 for sex.
Cabramatta man Jamie Mckeay posted an ad on Locanto in June last year where he was ‘looking to reward an Asian girl for some fun’.
The 33-year-old’s ad description offered $1,000 for a ‘teen’, which lead him to be contacted by Strike Force Trawler detectives.
Police posed under the alias of a 14-year-old Thai girl named Kim, with Mckeay proceeding to ask officers sexually explicit questions on Skype.
His explicit messages included asking to ejaculate on the teenager, boasting about his penis size and requesting to meet up in school hours.
Daily Telegraph reported on his arrest in June last year Mckeay said his lewd messages were intended to ‘scare her off’.
Mckeay told Judge Richard Weinstein in Campbelltown District Court he was ‘depressed and lonely’ when sending the messages.
The New Zealand native also said he wished to ‘re-live’ his teenage sexual history.
Mckeay was convicted of using a carriage service to procure a person under 16 and possessing child pornography on a hard drive.
He was sentenced to two years and three months in jail and will be released on September 20 on a one year recognisance order.
