Pervert sent nude pictures and twisted sexual messages to someone he thought was 12 years old


A Barrhead predator asked a vigilante group member he thought was a 12-year-old girl to send him a pair of her pants for his birthday.

Twisted Stewart Henderson, described as a prisoner of Low Moss in Bishopbriggs, admitted that between July 20, 2021 and August 21, at Fenwick Drive, Barrhead, and elsewhere that he sent sexually explicit messages to a child aged 12, who was in fact an adult decoy.

Henderson, 54, also admitted he sent pictures of his penis to the decoy and tried to induce them to send him indecent images of herself to him.

Prosecutor Kerry Marshall moved to have Henderson made subject of eight requirements of the sexual offenses prevention order.

These include prohibiting him from having contact with anyone under the age of 16 and preventing him from deleting any internet browsing history, call logs and text messages on any device used by him.

Ms Marshall explained to Paisley Sheriff Court that Shatter The Silence was formed in 2018 by a group of adults who use decoy accounts using pictures of children who are now over 21 and have consented to their pictures being used.

The group creates accounts and the adults don’t send messages, they wait to be contacted.

It is a policy of this group that the adults must state the age of the supposed youth with the first five messages.

Ms Marshall told the court: “The decoy created an account on the app Jaumo, using a picture and stated she was 12-years-old and called Darcy.

“On July 20, 2021, Ms McAllister received a message on the Jaumo app from Henderson.

“He immediately struck up a conversation and asked how old she was.

“Ms McAllister replied stating she was 13.

“Henderson then asked Darcy to move the conversation on to WhatsApp and block his account.

“The accused sent numerous messages stating, ‘Hi’

“Numerous messages were sent by the accused as well as numerous pictures of his penis and selfie-style pictures.

“The accused also sent sound clips of a graphic sexual nature and he stated he ‘Wanted to have sex with a 12-year-old. I’m getting too far in, I’ll get the jail.’

“He asked her to send him a birthday card including a pair of pants and provided his address.

“The accused sent another message stating, ‘You’re 25 OK, not 12. If people find out you’re 12, you’ll be flung off. You’re 25, and I want you, nobody needs to know.’

“Police were contacted and two people from Shatter The Silence attended at the accused’s address and spoke to him and live streamed the meeting on Facebook Live.

“The accused agreed he was in conversation with a 12 year old.

“Police attended a short time later and the accused’s details matched the details he had given to Darcy.

“Henderson was cautioned and he replied, ‘She said she was 25. I only sent her a few pics of my d**k.’

“The accused took out his phone and tried to show police the profile and he was advised to put his phone away.

“He was arrested and replied ‘No comment’ to all questions at his police interview in the company of his solicitor.”

Defense agent Scott Banks was acting on Paul Coyle’s behalf stated creepy Henderson had a previous conviction that it was “directly analogous” and that reports would be necessary.

Sheriff Eoin McGinty agreed stating: “A report is necessary for a variety of reasons and in this case I need a professional to decide what risk you now impose to children.”

Henderson was remanded for the preparation of a criminal justice social work report and a restriction of liberty order assessment.

Henderson was placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register and will be brought back to court later this month for sentencing.
