Three paedophiles who planned to rape two young girls they had targeted over the internet were jailed for a total of 27 years yesterday, in what police said was the first case in Britain to use cyber chat as evidence. [...]
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police's Child Abuse Investigation Command said: "This is a really significant investigation because, for the first time, internet chat logs have been used to prove a charge of conspiracy to rape a child. This case should act as a really stark warning that the internet is not a hiding place to plan and participate in criminal acts."
