Paedophile who groomed 12-year-old boy for sex Escapes Jail Sentance

A paedophile who groomed a 12-year-old boy for sex in a public library has avoided jail.

Sam Roan targeted the schoolboy and bombarded him with with vile messages on Facebook while sitting a few feet away in Leith Library, Edinburgh.

At the time, he was out on supervision after being arrested last August for sending a photo of his private parts to a 13-year-old boy via Snapchat.

He appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Tuesday to be sentenced for both crimes after a psychologist’s report was prepared.

A sheriff said he was ‘very concerned’ over Roan’s predatory behaviour – but allowed him to walk free from court.

Roan was put on supervision for three years and banned from using the internet or approaching children.

The 22-year-old tried to convince schoolboy to meet him outside the library and engage in a sex act over Facebook, reports the Daily Record.

He was while sitting a few feet away in Leith Library, Edinburgh, when he sent the explicit messages 

It was said in the Sherriff’s Court that he bombarded the boy with explicit message in February, but it went to further.

Sheriff Frank Crowe said: ‘Most of the time you’ve been fine but on at least two occasions you’ve used the internet to communicate with young boys which is a concern to us all.’

The sheriff put Roan under a supervision order and told him to return to court in six months for a progress report.
