Man Allegedly Lured Girls For Sex


Full story and MySpace profile:

A Man used a gothic Internet chat room to solicit underage girls for nude pictures and sex at a cemetery, a court has been told.

Daniel William Peckham, 22, fronted Parramatta Bail Court yesterday charged with grooming minors for sex online and transmitting child pornography.

Police Prosecutor Steve McGrath said Peckham's alleged activities came to light after a member of the public e-mailed the Australian Federal Police online child sexual exploitation team with concern about a MySpace website.

The website, Rookwood Gothic Society, was soliciting minors for sex, the informant told the Federal Police.

Federal officers traced the site to Peckham.

They executed a search warrant at his home and found about 30 images of unidentified nude and semi-nude females.

Several images were of a girl later found to be aged just 13.

The girl later told police that Peckham had contacted her via a gothic chat room, inviting her to join his Rookwood Gothic Society.

He told her via his MySpace forum that the only way to become a member was if she either had sex with him or sent him nude pictures of her.

The girl expressed concerns and told Peckham she was only 13 years of age but agreed.
