Man made prostitutes of vulnerable Perth girls

Postby admin » 01 Jun 2017, 21:56

A young man who preyed on teenage girls in Perth with offers of money for sex was caught in a sting by some of his young victims. John McCash scouted for potential partners online, under an assumed name, before apparently using his state benefits to offer as much as £1,000 to cash-strapped targets.

Despite initial success in convincing at least one vulnerable girl to turn to prostitution, the 21-year-old’s scheme soon fell apart. He persuaded an 18-year-old girl — who had been struggling to pay her rent — to take part in a late night liaison in the back of his car, but then made the mistake of targeting her friend.

She had already been warned about falling into his clutches and instead the two pals hatched a plan to trap him. When McCash drove into Perth city centre to meet her he found a group of young women waiting in the shadows to get look at his face and note his vehicle registration.

Though he made his escape, the women reported the matter to Police Scotland and officers were soon sent to carry out of a search of his home in Appin Terrace, rousing him from his bed at around 5am.

Perth Sheriff Court heard the police investigations then branched-out as they searched mobile telephones and computers for evidence of the steps taken to solicit girls. In addition to the information sought, they also discovered indecent photographs and videos of children as young as eight.

A man who procured an 18-year-old woman to become a prostitute after scouting for potential partners online was described as “socially inept” by his solicitor at court. Mrs Rosie Scott, defending, told Perth Sheriff Court on Wednesday that her client, John McCash, 21, of Appin Terrace, Perth, felt offering girls money for sex was a “good way” to meet females.

The solicitor said McCash had not “thought his plan through” and had his “head in the sand” after the court had heard details of how the young man targeted teenage girls online but was caught in a ‘sting’ operation.

The court had previously been told that one girl that McCash tried to prey on had been told of his intentions and she and a friend then devised a plan to trap him. He drove a car into Perth city centre one evening only to find a group of women who managed to get a look at his face and who noted his vehicle’s registration.

The court had heard police were contacted and officers arrived at McCash’s parents’ home when they searched mobile phones and computers for evidence of his efforts to solicit girls. However, police also discovered indecent photographs and videos of children.

On Wednesday, Mrs Scott told the court her client was “socially inept” and described how McCash thought his actions were a “good way to meet females.” “My client was experimenting but this really paints quite a sad picture,” she said. “His mother knew nothing about this until she read about it in a newspaper and now she wants him out of the house.”
