Ramsgate sex offender jailed after sending explicit messages and trying to meet with girl he believed was 12

JAILED: Michael McGee,

Following an investigation by the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) a 38-year-old man from Ramsgate has been jailed for a sex offence and breaching a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO). 

Michael McGee, of King Street, Ramsgate, was jailed for six years and eight months on at Reading Crown Court on Thursday, March 7. 

He pleaded guilty to one count each of arranging/facilitating the commission of a child sex offence and breaching a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO).  

Between November and December last year, McGee was communicating online with a girl who he believed was 12 years old. He sent sexually explicit messages and arranged to meet her in person.  

He also breached the conditions of a SHPO by factory resetting one of his devices.  

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Lisa Betchley, of SEROCU, said: “SEROCU takes sexual offending extremely seriously. 

“McGee contacted and arranged to meet someone he believed to be underage. Thankfully no children were in danger, however McGee’s intentions were clear.  

“Further, due to the risk that he was deemed to pose because of previous offending, he was made subject to a SHPO meaning that he had to abide by certain conditions. He breached one of those conditions. Such breaches are not taken lightly, and he has been sentenced accordingly.  

“If you are a victim of a sexual offence or have information about offences having been committed, please report this to your local police force by calling the non-emergency number 101 or 999 in an emergency.”
